Reading and Math
Yes, we still read books with real pages to turn!
Whether it is Education Galaxy, Prodigy Game, Front Row, Epic!, or RAZ-Kids.....the competition keeps them striving to learn more.
Field Trip this Friday!
Your child needs a disposable sack lunch for Friday.
They will also need to wear their PURPLE TEAM DOVE shirt.
Field Trip Planning Project
Side thought: My husband was a chaperone on my daughter's field trip there last year, and the one thing he said was that there was not enough time to take these littles around to do everything.
We know that is the case regardless, but why not try to organize ourselves and see all of our favorite things instead of spending time reading the map and thinking it through!?! If your child wants to spend the entire time racing the cheetah....then so be it! It is about them, right? :) Of course, I will recommend visiting a few more things, don't worry.
With the amount of amazing chaperones our class has, we are only pairing up a handful of kids, but that does not mean that you all can't walk around together! The kids are worried about that. LOL.
We are going to research our interests, create a list of the names, make a map of where they are located, and what order we should probably attempt to go. Whew! That's a lot, but it is really exciting to see how excited they get about doing this. Believe it or not, your kids are really starting to think this way!! :)
There will be a packet coming home on Monday for all chaperones. This will have the information you need on the first page, and the next two pages are the exhibits that will be available.
Thank you SO much for volunteering to chaperone and make this the best field trip yet!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I missed getting to be the only one these last few months, but it also gave me a chance to step back and enjoy every little moment with them that sometimes I can't see because of being the only one. This was truly a blessing!
Representation of My Feelings!
This is my daughter, but it is the best picture to show how I felt getting to "have my kids back fully" after student intern.
