Nature Study and Time

I am working on lesson plans this morning. I noticed this addition to the AO Year 5 book list. I love it:

Supplies for Nature Study:

*Nature notebook and pencils or paint for each student

*Begin to build a library of regional field guides

* Plenty of time to allow Nature Study to be a fun learning experience for both parent and child.

Plenty of time. We have to specially set it aside so we will have it for the best uses...

I am not one of those busy people who always accomplish a lot, but recently I've realized that I still need the reminder to set aside "plenty of time". Especially with my kids. Forming relations requires a willingness to spend time! So it's a timely reminder for me.
