What a day....

I went from 4 followers to 7 followers in like an hour! How in the world do I get more followers (i.e. more encouragement to write)?? I'm thinking about doing a giveaway when I get to 25 followers.....

Today was our third field trip of the year. We went to the life and science museum . It's an awesome museum, and the kids had a blast! My class definitely didn't have their listening ears on, I spent a lot of time raising my voice :( I am forever grateful to my two parent volunteers...they were amazingly helpful.

This afternoon we wrote about our field trip on the form I found on Kimberly's blog: . I'll take some pictures of their writing tomorrow. I was very sad because under the I learned column I had one little boy write "I learned that going to a museum you've been to a hundred times is boring." Grrr...I think most of our kids had a blast.

We found out we have some extra money in the first grade account so we get to go on two more trips this year! Yea! It will only cost our kids $5/each. We are a high poverty school, so funding for field trips is usually pretty hard to come by!


  1. Well, I found your blog through Jennifer at Rowdy in First grade. She was talking about your "10 things I learned teaching" list.

    I completly understand about funding in high poverty schools. I'm right there with you.

  2. I discovered your blog through another blog I follow. :) I envy you. I haven't been on a single field trip this year! Guess I'll have to fill the last couple of months of school with my field trip quota!

  3. I found you through Rowdy in First Grade too. Your 10 things I Learned post was one of my inspirations to post about tattling. And I totally understand about the field trip thing with students from a high poverty area. We go to a hands on science museum with an IMAX theater every May and it cost $9. We start sending letters home about it in February. :)

  4. Hooray! Glad you could use the field trip writing form!

  5. I'm new to blogging as well and every time I get a new follower I get all excited and tell my husband...who tells me I'm awesome. ;) Don't get discouraged. Your few loyal readers will follow you and spread the love to new me! :)
