We voted to see which ones we would do today. The stream and dirt slide won! As we headed to the stream the kids seemed especially excited to go back to their favorite places. I like it that they got to choose.
The stream was an easy choice-close to the farm. Soon it was time for snack. Everyone found a place on the bridge to sit and hear the fun story/song that Teacher Rhonda and Teacher Ann sang.
The trail took us through the woods, past the elephant tree, across the bridge to our first vote. We have the kids "vote with their bodies" by standing next to the trail they think will lead to our chosen destination: The dirt slide. We had many "unanimous" votes today as the kids used "the maps in their heads" to remember where the dirt slide was. We had to choose 4 times before the kids ran ahead to one of their favorite sliding and jumping places.
On the way back for lunch-the sun came out a little bit and there was even time for some tire swing fun. Yeah! That was when we realized that we hit 4 out of the 5 top things to do at TOP. Not bad! We will be continuing to repeat our favorite hikes, activities and play these last few days.
PS Don't forget about our fun last day of preschool with you and your child. Bring any adult who would like to see a little of what we do at TOP. Plus a hayride and a barbecue. Bring a dish to share for the potluck. You can shoot me an email if you are wondering what to bring.
