our first "discover with me" field trip! a couple of mommies and i met up at Discovery Green Park on tuesday, april 13th, in downtown Houston to discover a play - Alice in Wonderland! we also celebrated the park's second year with a slice of chocolate and vanilla birthday cake!
as i sat and watched my toddlers watch the play, i could not help but wonder what an impact this would be to the children who "must be prepped" for upcoming standardized tests.... i was imagining if i was the teacher... i'd rather bring my students to watch the play and plug in the teaching objectives that would of been covered in any test. a play, with characters, plot, setting, problem, etc... what a way to get children into literature, reading, writing...
my mind began to race and think of a plan (as if i were a teacher)... how would i get my students to this play...
