Field Trips

I haven’t missed any field trip when I was still studying. Those were wonderful and treasured experiences and I want my little girl to have the same experiences as mine. The truth is I am the one more excited every time RJ is going on a field trip. It is because I am excited on RJ’s reactions and not actually on the destinations. On RJ’s first field trip, we went to Quezon Museum, Gonuts Donuts, Science Expo and Manila Ocean Park.

First Field Trip 

On her second grade I asked her as early as July (3 months before the field trip) when their field trip will be and she asked, “Why are you more excited than me?” I told her that I am excited because she will get to see how things really are, how they work and all that stuff. On their second field trip, there was a cost-cutting because of typhoon Ondoy. Our place was one of those who were affected. We went to Quezon Museum (again), Storyland and La Mesa Eco Park.

Field Trip 2009

Field trips motivate and educate our kids. It help develops students’ personal and social skills and enrich their learning experiences while making them more aware of the world outside the walls of their school and home.

RJ enjoyed her hands-on experience from the outside world very much. See those smiles? Nothing beats experiencing things in actual situation.

  2. Field trips are so much fun, not to mention educational. I hope my son gets to join a lot of these when he joins Pre-K this school year. Can we also exchange links, mommy? Thanks!

  3. Same here. I did enjoy all my field trips when I was a student yet so I want to pass on the excitement and the good way of learning from them to my kids even if it means a slash from the budget.
    So your little girl is lucky with you for getting to all these places.

  6. This reminds me when I was the one taking care of my nephew during his kindergarten years. Both of us got excited everytime there were field trips because we both enjoyed it, yun lang kasi ang chance namin na makapasyal sa ibang lugar. (he-he-he)
    Hmm… I miss those years, and I miss my baby nephew. Malaki na kasi siya ngayon… pareho nang nag-change na ang mga mundo namin. 🙁

  7. mommy is excited!:D anyway, it is true that field trips are very important part of education… this is where kids learn to apply what they see in textbooks and school di ba?
