Successful Field Trip!

Thank you to all parents who were able to come chaperone or who helped by making sure their child was prepared for our field trip! What a success it was!

Considering there were 2,500 kids at the Perot Museum, we were able to see the things we wanted (Thanks to our plans!), eat lunch when we wanted, and all meet up on time to head back without any crazy thing happening!! I call that a HUGE SUCCESS!

The kids could not wait to return and talk about what they learned. One child asked, "Mrs. Visser, can we share what we learned on the way home?" OF COURSE YOU CAN! It was fun for me to be able to walk around and spend time with each group at least once. Their excitement made my day!

Hands down favorites were:

1. Gems

2. Race the Cheetah (or whatever else you chose)


Let me just say that in all my years of teaching, I have never had a class as silly as this one! They are always up for a crazy face or act crazy in a pic! Every. Single. One. Of. Them. I LOVE IT!
