While we were at Pinewood Court looking for items we could paint with, Kasey noticed a tree with one of its branches broken. This made him very curious and he went toward the tree, grabbed onto the branch and pulled. The branch snapped very easily because it was already partially broken. Kasey brought the branch over to his Educators and show them how he broke the tree. They asked him ‘what should we do with the broken tree? ’‘We can’t fix it,’ he told them. One of the Educators had an idea, to bring the tree inside. Once they brought the tree inside the children noticed the empty pot with soil in our room and decided we would ‘plant’ our broken tree. We’ve given the tree a new life and new home in our program.
