What's going on in Room 125?

Weekly Update: Horses

on March 1, 2012

This week all of our activities were about horses!  Today was our first trip to Acres of Opportunity ranch.  Despite the cold and snowy weather, everyone had a great time!  I was so proud of all of the Room 125 cowboys.  Check out the photos section to see all the fun we had!  We groomed horses, rode them, did an obstacle course, played horseback follow the leader, fed the horses and chickens, and collected chicken eggs.  Everyone got to take home an egg…so keep an eye out for it!  We also got to bring a saddle and brushes back to our classroom, which students will be able to explore and work for for the next few months.

We will be keeping a journal about our experiences at the ranch, so that your child can share their experiences with you.  This is such a cool opportunity for our room, and I’m very excited for our students!

Field Trip!

Room 125 is really getting out in the world! Not only are we going on horseback riding trips, we are going to the art museum!  We will be joining the second grade class on March 13 from 9:15-12:45.  Please sign and return the permission slip for the trip. I am sending it home in folders today.
