2014 Fall Schedule


The fall class schedule connects the needs of the gardens to the timing of classroom lessons in the first semester.  For a complete listing of lessons, please visit the lesson guides section of the website.

 

Loveland School Gardens

Granny's Garden School started in the spring of 2002 on the campuses of Loveland Elementary and Primary Schools.  The curriculum maps at Loveland served as the basis to integrate Ohio academic content standards with the cycles of the garden.  We have a long history of collaboration with teachers to meet the needs of the classroom and the needs of the garden.

Stewart Elementary School Gardens

The program at Stewart Elementary School began in the spring of 2014.  We created a unique schedule to tailor the subject matter to the curriculum timing at the school.  In some cases, this meant just using an existing lesson at a different time of the year.  In other cases, an activity may be the same between the schools, but the lesson material has been altered to meet the curriculum content taught at Stewart Elementary.  The classes meet every other week with some on a "week 1"  rotation and others on a "week 2" rotation.
