Teacher Time: Seaport Village

Our school recently had our annual auction. This year there was a silent auction for "teacher time". The teacher gets to choose an activity to do on a weekend with a students and one of his friends and families bid on it. This year I decided to take the kids to Seaport Village and ride the carousel, have hot cocoa and read books at the Upstart Crow book store, and then take a ferry ride to Coronado and have a picnic lunch by the beach. We had so much fun!

Here we are the the Upstart Crow.

The boys chose a book to buy.

We rode the carousel.

We took the ferry to Coronado. The boys liked looking at the Midway from the ferry.

This is us on the beach at Coronado.

We had a great day!

Field Trip: Torrey Pines

Last week, we went on a field trip to Torrey Pines. We hiked down the beach trail and then we looked at the creatures on Flat Rock. We had so much fun! The kids did an awesome job hiking.

We saw crabs, molluscs, and sea anemones.

The kids loved exploring the beach.

Wild Things Play 2016

At the end of April we performed our version of Where the Wild Things Are.  We had a lot of fun. 

Here is our class all dressed up.

I made this Max decoration and displayed it at the gate as the audience walked into the school. 

We made vines out of green paper.

Monster footprints showed the way to the hall. We also made a wild thing mouth for the doorway.

We decorated all of the classroom doors as wild things.

The students had to walk through this wild thing door. The sign on the door says "Wild Things Enter Here".

This is the set for Max' room.

This is the set for where the wild things live.

These are our programs.

The room moms made these yummy treats for us to eat after the play.

The students are ready for the play.

Our Max was awesome!
