Art Gallery Field Trip
On Monday, I booked a few hours off of work to help out in Sophie's class and accompany the kids to a field trip down to the Art Gallery. I got to spend about 30 minutes in the class before we headed out. It is a lovely class. The kids come in without being rushed, find their reading or workbooks and start to work, often pairing up with a friend. It is such a change from Sophie's class last year. It felt much more inviting and enjoyable.
The trip down to the gallery was easy. It was all downhill. The trip back up to the school on the return walk home was a bit of a struggle as it is pretty much all up hill. Hungry, tired Grade 2s. However, everyone persevered and seemed to have a good time.
We saw this exhibit.
