Last month my principal asked me to go with the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades on their field trip. They went to the Museum of the American GI and Veteran’s Park. To be perfectly honest, I was not excited at first.
I was looking forward to the time at school without them. However, this seemed to be another example of “other duties as assigned” and I decided to make the best of it.
The museum was actually fascinating. I learned many things and my group of students was able to complete all the questions on the assignment we were given. It was a beautiful day so being outside at the park was nice. There were statues for each of the wars fought and my group wanted to take silly pictures at each of them. We had a lot of fun.
My favorite part of the day, though, was the last activity. We visited a different part of the park which included a music section.
I don’t know who had more fun – me or the students.
I can’t wait to go back and take my grandsons! I may even go by myself.
I am a music teacher, after all.
I can play whatever musical instrument I want – even if it is in a park!
