Well, I added a new element to Book Club- field trips. I also dropped it to 3 days/week instead of 5. Five days/week was way too much. It made me feel like I was still teaching. I didn’t feel like I was on vacation. Anyway, I digress.
So, we went to FREE TUESDAY @ The LaBrea Tarpits. I packed them a lunch (Water, mini carrots, Austin’s peanut butter crackers, a Jona gold apple, Smart & Final tortilla chips, toffee coated almonds, and Ritz wheat sticks). I brought along a blanket to sit on after our tour of the Pits. Everything worked out fine. One of my charges tried to get mouthy, but I nipped it in the bud. They had a great time. Of the five children I took along for the ride, only 1 had never been there.
On Thursday I’m planning for us to go to the Autry Musuem (which is free the first Thursday of the month after 4 p.m.). Join us won’t you!
