Today my class went on a field trip to the nursing home. My students partnered up with a resident, and read them stories and talked to them. They also gave them the St. Patty's Day cards they made them. Then, they had green punch and shamrock cookies. The folks were thrilled with the children, and the children really enjoyed hanging out with them! Smiles and laughs were plenty today! It was great fun! Anyway, thought I would share a neat day in the life of an inner city public school class.
