had told my class yesterday that we were going to be getting a very special donation, but I didn't tell them what it was. I let them ask me yes/no questions when we had a little downtime, and it really got them interested and excited. So when we opened the boxes together today, they were thrilled!
We talked a little about how nice it would be to get outside of the classroom for a bit and still be learning. They can't wait to take our first walk!
Sadly, it is going to be raining here for the next several days. I really want our first walk to be outside, so we will probably have to wait until next week to actually get started.
A big thank you goes to Lora from the walking classroom and to the Kenan CharitableTrust for their generous donation!
