Essentials For Every Field Day ( Momimhar posted on May 26th, 2018 )

Students had fun at the Field Day games

Water slide was K’s favorite at the Field Day.

The classic game of Tug-O-War. Field Day 2018.

Yesterday, Friday, was Field Day at K’s school. Everyone was very busy preparing the outdoor games, obstacle courses, bounce house, and water slide.  The children were very excited and couldn’t wait for the special day to come.

The night before, I prepared the important things K may need according to the school’s notice-sunscreen, towel, bottled water, change clothes, and snack/sack lunch.

Sunscreen

Because all the activities are outdoors and late Spring in Texas start to get really hot, it is very necessary to put on sunscreen. Even if it is a cloudy weather, putting on sunscreen is highly recommended to prevent getting sunburns especially on young children’s skin.  We’ve been using Banana Boat Sun Comfort Sunscreen Spray.  It has been our trusted protection against harmful UV rays for years whenever we go outdoors or to the beach.  It’s non-sticky feel after spraying gives it the advantage.

Towel and Change Clothes

Usually field day activities include water games.  Darling daughter said the water slide was her favorite among all the fun games yesterday. So she brought a towel and change clothes because, boy, the students were soaking wet yesterday from the water slide and sponge battle. They had a lot of fun.

Bottled Water

Of course, with constant movement in the heat, the kids needed hydration. And the most convenient item to bring was bottled water.  The only thing was, there’s no place to put those drinks in.  The crate was full of towels. So I had to look for a big plastic bag to put all those drinks in so I can carry them around.  Gladly one of the staff at the sign in area under the shade of the trees had an extra big plastic bag.

Sack Lunch and Snack 

I don’t remember if I ordered a sack lunch for K from the cafeteria weeks before the field day. So I packed her lunch anyway just in case I didn’t.  After the students’ completed all the outdoor activities, they went back to the classrooms and changed.  Then they proceed to the cafeteria for the dance party and yearbook signing. The students ate lunch in their respective classrooms after.

It was an awesome fun day. Good thing the First Graders were the first ones in the schedule to go outdoors before it got too hot at mid day. To end the day, they had Kona Ice to cool them off.  What a great day!

First Grade Musical Program Ten Little Lady Bugs ( Momimhar posted on April 21st, 2018 )

Musical Program

It was a busy week for me this week. I volunteered at the Book Fair at DD’s school for three days and did a lunch cover for a 3rd Grade class Thursday.  Then it was darling daughter’s musical program yesterday.  She was shy telling me about it because she is not really into singing, she said. 🙂 There’s not much time for me to make an animal costume because DD said her part was a horse.  I was like, uhmm…what should I do? Good thing it was optional and K just wanted to wear Sunday best.

Gladly, dear husband and my brother-in-law made it on time before the program started. We had a great time. We are so proud of our little lady bug. 🙂

Polax Express Experience at School ( Momimhar posted on December 20th, 2017 )

Polar Express at school

I subbed in Kindergarten few days ago, and it was a Polar Express Day.  The school’s PTO organized this event for the students every Christmas season.  The children loves it.  They get to wear their favorite pajamas to school and bring their favorite pillows or stuffed toy (lovey for the younger ones).  Then they get to watch the Disney animated movie Polar Express while eating popcorn and having some chocolate milk delivered room-to-room by the PTO members.

It was indeed a special event for the students.  Their excitement was to the roof.  In fact, almost all of the children in the class I subbed kept asking me when will the Polar Express gonna start. 🙂  They’re so adorable.  They can’t wait for Christmas.

Red Ribbon Week at the School ( Momimhar posted on October 25th, 2017 )

Future veterinarian.

It’s Red Ribbon Week at K’s school.  Red Ribbon Week is schools’ campaign against illegal drugs.  As part of the campaign, everyone in the school dresses up according to the approved daily dress up theme.

Monday-Wear Red

Tuesday-Wear Camo

Wednesday-Wear something that will show future career

Thursday-School Spirit Day

Friday-No class (Professional Development for teachers and staff)

I had to go to Walmart on Sunday to buy a camouflage dress for Tuesday’s outfit.  K said she wants a pink camo.  There was no girls pink camo shirt in the store but I saw a girl’s pink camo dress.  So I bought one and so delighted that it’s priced $3 .

Girl’s camo dress.

Then last night was the last minute preparation for today’s career dress up.  I asked K what her future job would be.  Though she had a lot in mind, she was particular about being a doctor for animals.  So veterinarian it is. She had a Doc McStuffins costume in her closet when she was 5.  So I improvised that and created a stethoscope because her stethoscope toy was nowhere to be found.
