We had a field trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. For some of my students it was their first time there ever! We got off to a rough start and ended later than intended but the children had fun. I got to walk through without any students! It was awesome. Here are some pics I got to take.
a baby leopard shark (just like the ones I saw when I was at Elkhorn Slough!)
one of my favorite exhibits, the aviary.
my next favorite exhibit, the jellyfish!
these are upside down jellyfish
another favorite, an eel. :)
this guy lived with the eel!
everyone's favorite, the penguins
And of course, Nemo and Dory, always a kid crowd pleaser!
While I have been a to z'ing, I have been busy knitting. I just finished a shawl (no pics yet). It is waiting to be blocked. I am also in between a shawl and a cowl.Neither one is an easy project. The shawl that I actually completed was actually pretty easy which is probably why I finished that before either of these two!
We will begin our state testing this week. How to entertain about 75 Kindergarten-1st graders, I am soon to find out. I can't believe the end of the year is already here! I intend to get cracking on my narratives now so I'm not complaining about them in June!
Happy Earth Day!
