{zoo field trip}

I was thrilled when Jax teacher asked me to be a chaperone on the zoo field trip yesterday!
Each day Miss Willette write the kids a letter. This is what she wrote them today...
And this is what they were doing when I arrived...going over the {rules}
Miss Willette has such an encouraging way of teaching. She truly believes in positive reinforcement. I was so please with the kindness that she showed the kids. Never telling them no. But explaining her expectations and then telling them she knew they could do it because they are great kids.
One thing she does to encourage them to be quiet is to say..."marshmallows in your mouth!" And the kids then pretend to have big marshmallows in their cheeks.
The kids were so good on the bus...everyone stayed in their seats and used their inside voices...:)
One of the favorite animals were the kangaroos...and the kids even did their impressions of the kangaroo. Miss Willette let them all hop to the exit.

Then we went to the "senses" program to meet a few new friends...
{Count Chocula} ...he really like Caden!
A snake(can't remember his name) Not everyone was thrilled to see him. A few kids were scared.
And a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach...
Then it was time to get back on the bus and head back to school!
