By Nicky Mey, Grade 1 Teacher/Vice Principal, Eastview Elementary We sat in a circle and shared the
wonderful dried sage that was given to each of the teachers to celebrate
World Teachers' Day.
We smelled it, and told stories related to plants
and smells and then learned that it is one of the sacred medicines used
by Indigenous peoples. At "tell my story" time, the children wrote about sage and their connections to it – unprompted. Thank you for this amazing gift.
Here is what this small dried sage fostered in our learners.
