I don't have any pictures from my classroom this week since I was out all week. I got the awesome opportunity to go on a 4-day, 3-night field trip with the fifth graders in my district to Nature's Classroom. If you haven never heard of it, I highly recommend it! Tomorrow's post will have more details but here are a few sneak peeks!
1. The motto of Nature's Classroom is IALAC - I Am Loving and Caring. Or you can make up your own phrase to fit the acronym. I Am Learning And Curious was mine. The teachers and leaders wore these pins all week.
2. At Nature's Classroom, the students are constantly learning (they just don't know it). At mealtime, the students learned about ort. Ort is leftover food from a meal that isn't compost. Here's a picture of our compost plate from lunch.
4. While the students were in their groups, the teachers had a little downtime. We decided to go for a walk and came across a part of the town that had been destroyed by a tornado in 2011. Most of the houses had been rebuilt, but we saw the destruction of the trees. New England rarely gets tornados, so this was an eye-opening experience for me.
5. And last but not least, tt's time to clean out those TpT wishlists! I'm having a Spring Cleaning Sale! Everything in my TpT store is 20% off this Saturday and Sunday!
