First Field Trip of the Year!

Let me start by saying that I am not one that gets really excited about field trips, in fact I am quite the opposite.  I STRESS out about them!  I worry about all of it from making sure it was set up right to how will the kids do while we are on the field trip.
 
This past week, we were learning about communities and decided that it would be fun to go to the fire station to tour it for our extra fun thing that we do on the last day of the week.  They just finished building a fire station that is less than a block from our school.  So, we thought it would be a perfect little field trip....no need for a bus and it could be a fairly quick field trip.
 
We went on Friday and I was so impressed with my kiddos!  They did an outstanding job and set a great example on our field trip.  Throughout the week, we discussed the field trip and how to behave.  We also wrote about what would be good manners to have on the field trip.  In the end, I should have thought more about my quote on Wisdom for Wednesday because I worried about nothing!  It was a fun field trip and like I said, I was very impressed with how my kiddos behaved.  The other exciting thing about it was I also learned some neat stuff from the firemen that I didn't know about!  LOL!  The firemen that did the tour did an outstanding job with talking with the kids and giving them information about their jobs.   Check out the pictures below. 
 





I hope all of you have a great week!

  1. We don't get field trips anymore unless we can walk, but I'm the same way. I'm big about their best behavior when out and about.

  2. I haven't had a trip this year. One thing that doesn't make any sense to me is that since we're a Title 1 school the kids get to go free no matter. We also aren't supposed to keep any off the trips even if their behavior is insane. I'd almost just rather not go than take some of the gems we have at times.
