Saturday, October 6, 2012
Thursday was 77 degrees and sunny. We worked hard. We did calendar and math, reader’s workshop, name game, and writing. Friday was 56 degrees and overcast. We played hard, outside, all day. Why does it always work that way? It didn’t matter though, we had a great time! PTA really put on an amazing day. It was well organized, high interest, and appropriate for all different age levels. I love that so many times that day kiddos said to me, “I’ve never done this before!”. I know as a parent there are things I haven’t exposed my kids to because either I didn’t think to, or it isn’t something I am confident or interested in. Then there are other things that my kids won’t do with me, but would do if their teacher told them to! I can tell you all the kids participated in every activity.
S had some mad hoola hoop skills! She could go forever! These guys? Well, they tried:)
F was so proud of his first time jump roping. Poor guy was using a rope about 3 times too long, but he managed to get over it a few times!
I think K might be part kangaroo. He was getting some serious air on the jumpy ball!
Future American idol? Better remember your Kindergarten teachers when you make it big A!
Being good listeners at the gymnastics station…it’s hard to wait to have all that fun!
The canoe and kayak station was so cool for the kids. They got to try on life jackets and get in the boats with real oars. The volunteers even shook the boats to simulate waves!
After snack we went inside for a few hours, and yes, I made them do some work! After lunch though, it was back outside for our last two stations! First up, fishing!
Finally, it was our turn to go to Karate. For some reason, this was the station the kids(girls and boys) were looking forward to the most! They talked about it constantly the day before, and when I looked at the schedule sure enough it was last! It ended up being a good thing because it keep them going through the afternoon. When we finally got there, they were totally into it!
It was a really fun day, and I’m sure everyone slept good that night! Next week, back to the grindstone!
