Field Day

Today was field day! Usually we have it in June but this year our school hosted Field Day in October. Weird, right? I was so not into having it in October before today. But I loved it! It was cool (65 degrees), so the kids were running around and doing athletic activities and eventually took their hoodies off. But more importantly, it gave me a day to bond with my kiddos who I've had for a month and a half now. I had such an amazing time with them. I just wanted to share that :)

Super happy teacher right here.


  1. That is a neat idea! I'd never even considered having field day so early in the year, but why not? It helps build a community in your class, plus it's not nearly as hot and doesn't interfere with testing AT ALL at the end of the year!

  2. Having Field Day in October never would have occurred to me...however, it does make more sense. It helps to build the classroom community and school community early in the year....and the weather is that means more fun!!
