It was walking field trip Friday and the first ever Rio del Sol Harvest Festival.
The day began with a Kindergarten performance of thriller that had me happy crying. I can't watch synchronized little ones do anything without getting emotional. After they performed, the Hip Hop Mindset group performed followed by volunteers from the audience of which two were from my class and one was a friend's son. I stopped filming before one of the boys performed amazingly well! Turn the sound down if you want to watch!
Many of the students designed booths with activities for students to do. One of my students made 100 origami frogs for prizes! A couple of 2nd grade students weren't having much luck with people playing their game so I asked one of the boys if they would try it. Next thing we knew there was a contest for who would be the best. Students used something that looked like a lightsaber but pumped air out and moved the ping pong ball. Many students gave away their tickets to younger siblings for prizes.
After returning from the Harvest Festival we walked over to Rio Vista Middle School We were invited to attend their Renaissance Rally. They graciously allowed our students to try out for the cheer team and since we have 3 cheerleaders, the Rio del Sol 6th graders were able to see their classmates perform. The rally was very well done!
Big positive (even though my plantar fasciitis pain is back)
plus it's payday!!!
