Emily is a second grader this year, but she is mainstreamed into the kindergarten class through-out the day still. She is very social and she LOVES it. She does circle time on the mat, calendar time, art time, and recess. The kindergartners adore her, and she has a great time with them. She's tiny, still the size of a small kindy kid, so it's a great fit.
This year, I asked at her IEP for her to be able to go on the field trips with kindergarten this year. Her special ed program doesn't go on any field trips, so this would be a great experience for her.
Her first field trip was this week, to a pumpkin patch! It's a real working far at a local high school. There were farm animals and a giant field to wander through. It wasn't very wheelchair accessible, but we had a blast. Since Emily is going on field trips now, her boyfriend gets to go too. He is in her special ed class, and goes to kindergarten with her. It was so much fun to take these two on a field trip!
It must be field trip week, tomorrow I am going on a big one with Jacob's class. It should be a blast! It includes a boat ride in the ocean and dissecting a fish! :)
