Field Trip –10.15

 

On Monday, which was October 10th, our class and other two classes of 3rd grade went to field trip. Hurray!!!  It’s good to see the difference between American-style’s field trip and Chinese-style’s Autumn trip.

(周一,十月十日,三年级的三个班包括我们班去了秋游。这是很棒的体验,可以看看美式秋游和中式秋游的不同。)

We went to Saint John’s Outdoor University. Kids told me that they’ve been there for several times before we arrived here, but I thought both of us  would have a brand new experience.

(我们去了Saint John’s Outdoor University,孩子们告诉我说他们前几年已经去过那个地方好几次了,但是我觉得这次我们都会获得全新的体验。)

Compared to our Autumn trip in my childhood, this one is much more meaningful. My elder cousins told me that when they were children, their Spring trips and Autumn trips are more interesting than mine. Their schools organized trips to visit other cities, climb mountains, visit zoos. A few years later, for safety, schools canceled such wonderful trips. So go back to my years, we went to public park and had picnic again and again.

(和我童年时的秋游相比,这样的更有意义。我的堂哥堂姐们告诉我说他们以前的春游秋游比我的可有意思多了。他们的学校组织他们或去其他的城市,或爬山, 或去动物园。过了几年,我到了去春游秋游的年纪,但是出于安全考虑,各个学校取消了丰富的春秋游活动,取而代之的是去公园野餐吃零食,这样枯燥的活动持续了一年又一年。)

Nurses of Madison gave teachers first-aid kits.  Then the school bus took us to Saint John’s Outdoor University. The scenery of the university was quite beautiful.This field trip was much more like hiking. We had several stops, played games, not only the kids but also I learned new things about the plants, seeds, squirrel and Blue jay.  I never thought that school field trip would be so educational.

(麦迪逊的护士们准备好了急救包分发给各位老师。然后校车就带我们来到了大学。这里的风景很美。这次秋游更像是徒步远足。整个过程,我们中间停了几站,我们的向导领着孩子们讲知识,玩游戏。不只是孩子们,还有我也学到了很多关于植物,种子,松鼠和红嘴蓝鹊的新知识。我从没有想过远足能这么有教育意义。)

A simple and inimate communication with Nature.

(和大自然进行简单而亲密的交流)

Things are getting better and better, children started to accept me. I felt that connection between us. They would listen to me, and some kids would give me hugs when they leave. Keep up.

(事情真的有在一天天变好,孩子们逐渐接受了我。我能感受到我们之间建立起了联系。他们开始会听我的了,还有些孩子每天放学走的时候会给我一个拥抱。加油!)
