Here's our Thursday

I brought my camera to school on Thursday (when we went on the field trip) and took pictures all day. None of them include clear faces of children (just backs of heads and blurry faces in the background) , but they give you a pretty good idea of our day. From our regular morning routine to the fun we had on the field trip! :) Enjoy!

This is what I do before you all arrive at school.

Then we do our morning routine. I hand out stickers, we review the morning work, do some spelling, and if we have time play our favorite game on Spelling City.

After that you go to library.

I go back to the classroom to do things.

One of those things is to check the status of our mushers.

Then you come back for journal writing.

Today we wrote about Alaska.

Then we move the pins in the map to show our musher's location.
Cruz gets the dog on his desk today becuase his musher is in the lead!

Time to leave for the field trip!

You all seem to enjoy the 45 minute drive,
playing with the Brain Quest cards, eye spy bag, and tornado I brought.

The White Mountain Symphony was great! They played music from
Harry Potter, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Mary Poppins, and more.
See that trumpet play in the back row on the far right? That's my friend Stephen!

Then we head back home.

We eat lunch on the bus, and I take some aspirin becuase you guys are awfully loud!
Though I did enjoy the Taylor Swift song you serenaded us with.

We get back in time for the assembly,
where we hear Bruce Isham, author and storyteller,
tell us all about life in the old west.

Since you were good all day and had been sitting for it, we decide you deserve some recess. :)

Coming soon, pictures of our Iditarod unit. The winner is expected in Nome on Tuesday!
