Big Backyard Sign Up
Dear Parent/Guardian/Grandparent Volunteers
THANK YOU for volunteering. BBY is a wonderful hands on nature curriculum that spans grades K-5. For the Kindergarten walks there will be a 30 minute pre-walk training for volunteers led by a BBY team member followed immediately by a 30 minute walk with the students.
Our kindergarten walks will introduce students to basic skills and concepts used throughout the entire Big Backyard program. They will participate in three walks throughout the school year. The focus of the kindergarten walks is for the students to use their senses to make observations of seasonal changes in the Bowman Big Backyard and specifically in plants. Please use the link below to find the materials for the Fall, Winter and Spring walks but the materials will also be provided to you at the pre-walk training.
To sign up, find the teacher/class you wish to help. You are welcome to help on other walks, too!
Please make sure you are CORI approved before the day of the walk. To compete a CORI form you need to go to the Bowman Office with a picture ID.
