Avenida de la Playa

Let me start by saying that is it SO good to be back! We hit the ground running after the break and we are already 3 field trips in to our Avenida study! This week our community focus was on Jobs in the Community and people that contribute to the community (Community Contributors). This topic was a perfect fit for our visits with the Fire Fighters & Police Officers on Thursday. On Tuesday the children were able to visit the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club community and see how many people contribute to make the  club such a wonderful place to visit.
In preparation for each trip, the children read books, view pictures and share their own background knowledge surrounding the upcoming Avenida tour. Prior to each tour our class gathers as a group to discuss questions they have regarding the upcoming tour. Each child that goes on a tour is responsible for asking their own question as well as one or two questions for a friend. When the children return we share photos from the trip on the monitor while the children who went on the tour explain what they learned and answer any questions the class may have.
This week the children were amazing!! The children politely asked their questions to the adults providing the tours, shared their news and stories in a respectful way to their classmates and even completed the thank you notes for the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club! It was a good week!
Below are a few photo's of your darling children in various places within our little La Jolla Shores Community.
Away the go!

I think she is having fun.

I'm not sure how she can concentrate on her writing with that scoop of ice cream sitting there!
