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 http://www.ncmls.org/ . 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: http://funkyfirstgradefun.blogspot.com/ . 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!
