Today we went on our field trip to Kid Vention in Henderson:
On the way there, I read aloud The Lightning Thief on the bus. Our sweet old bus driver was a little bit confused when I asked for the microphone to host a read-aloud, but he willingly obliged. To be fair, I wasn't going to take no for an answer, so his compliance was appreciated :)
As a side note, the read aloud did not go as well as I expected. I sat on my knees, facing the back of the bus and between the construction zones and swerving, got a little car (bus?) sick from reading. Plus, some stinkers in the back were being disrespectful.
At least we tried to cram in more reading :)
We got to the ampitheater:
We saw four debates today:
And my students got really, really into it:
Hurray for democracy and voting!
