First First Grade Field Trip = Success!

Went on my first First Grade field trip today to our City's Aquarium and I was completely TERRIFIED! I'm talking NIGHTMARES, people! LOL. I dreamed that one of my bad listeners went to pet a shark and it gobbled him right up! LOL. Thank God it was just a dream; I was stressing! Don't get me wrong, I've been on field trips in previous years, but NEVER with firsties! They sure give you a run for your money! Holy Guacamole!!! I'm exhausted, but relieved that ZERO students were lost (or eaten by sharks! Lol.) in the process! Woot woot!! Because we had such a successful field trip, I'm in charge of planning the next field trip and would love suggestions as to where to take a group of first graders that is both fun and educational at the same time. Chicago has a bunch of amazing museums and a wonderful planetarium, but these places are always SOOOO PACKED! Would love to take them somewhere low key.
Please Leave a comment with your wonderful ideas!

I have got to get better at this whole blog thing! I don't want to be a once a month blogger, but that's what I've become.
Note to self: Get yourself together!!! Lol.
Anywho, as I was doing my usual Thursday "Blog Stalking", I came across an amazing giveaway! A Cupcake fore the teacher is giving away a $10 TARGET GIFT CARD! Woot! Woot! I LOVE Target, but we seem to have a love/hate relationship. I go in there for toilet paper and come out having spent over $100 bucks... happens all the time! Does this happen to you too? I wish i had some sort of cure for this, but sadly, I don't. =(
I'm sure $10 would help you... so go check out her blog at:
A Cupcake for the Teacher

Good luck, Everyone!
