Biking at School

It's Bike to Work Week and the staff and students
are encouraged to ride their bikes to school.
To celebrate we closed off the parking lot this morning
so our littlest students could participate.
It was so much more space than the playground pavement
we've used for the past two years.
We did our favourite things;
decorate our bikes with ribbons, balloons and licence plates,
washing our bikes,
and of course ride our bikes.
Especially through our pretend bike wash.
I think I'm going to have to make it taller.

I set up a StoryRide around the perimeter of the parking lot.
A few children noticed and read it with their grown ups.
We had more than 30 children participate
plus the kindergarten class joined us.
We set it up early so the primary grades could use it during
their recess time
 so a lot of children
rode their bikes at school this morning.
