Inch by Inch, Row by Row

Besides our yoga and music specials, once a week T1 also gets to do gardening with our resident expert and infant teacher, Julia! The kids love this time of exploration with natural materials, and it is a great time for us to connect with nature even when inclement weather keeps us stuck indoors. When it’s nice out, we do planting and watering projects, and when we’re inside, we can explore natural materials by touch, sight, and sounds. Julia even brings in a CD of nature sounds to create the right atmosphere. We finish each class with our special gardening song which everyone loves – here are the lyrics, try it at home!

Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
All it takes is a rake and a hoe
And a piece of fertile ground
Inch by inch, row by row
Someone bless these seeds I sow
Someone warm them from below
Till the rain comes tumbling down
