A history of field trips? If we consider the long term, we will realize that children have learned by being with their parents or placed in apprentice situations with employers for most of human history. In a sense, field trips were the norm, until the invention of formal education. I believe it was the Greeks, around the time of Plato, who invented formal schools.
Does this mean, because the history of field trips and apprentice situations is so long, that this is the most effective way to learn? What are the benefits and disadvantages of field trips? What are the benefits and disadvantages of learning in classrooms? And what are the benefits and disadvantages of apprenticeships? L.B. Sharp wrote that what is best learned indoors should be learned there, and what is best learned outdoors should be learned there.

Carry extras of everything. Some children will not bring hats, sunscreen, sunglasses, or, on the other side of the weather, toques, scarves, mitts. Have spares available. Take a first aid kit, in case of cuts or scrapes. Perhaps have alcohol swipes for cleaning wounds before bandaging them. Have water available for drinking. Have a whistle to call the students to you.

Helping Children in Your Program Get Ready to Start School Kindergarten teachers and child development experts agree that there are some important skills children need to make a successful transition to kindergarten. As early childhood educators, you play a key role in helping the children with whom you work get ready for school. You are already helping the children in your program in many ways! Read on to see what else you can do! Social and Emotional Skills When thinking about kindergarten readiness, what comes to mind for many people is the need for children to have early “academic” skills, such as reading, writing, and mathematics. Although some knowledge in these areas will certainly help children be better prepared for kindergarten, what is most important are children’s social and emotional skills Children need to feel excited and comfortable about starting kindergarten.

Planning For Summer
Opportunities and Challenges Summer is right around the corner and it's not too soon to start planning. While your need for child care is year-round, summertime offers special opportunities as well as challenges. Even for very young children, child care schedules often follow a school year model with transitions in June or September. For some children, the end of the school year will mean a move to a new classroom. For others, it may mean choosing a camp or recreational program followed by a new class or new school in the Fall. Summer might also mean vacation travel to visit friends and family.
Some children will be uneasy about the changes ahead. Changes in children's behavior and anxiety levels can occur when these changes take place. Try to think about each transition as an opportunity to teach your child how to handle new situations. Adults know that change is a constant, inevitable part of life. Talk with your child about the changes. Knowing what to expect and getting support from you can help your child gain the confidence to manage the road ahead.

24-7 fire service urged
Staff Writer
Selectmen gave Fire Chief Frank Carpentino 30 days to report on the economic feasibility of providing 24-hour fire and emergency medical service to the town.
They issued the directive during their meeting on Monday, June 7.
In doing so, selectmen urged Carpentino to speak with the local firefighters' union about the possibility of changing to 24-hour service.
"The economic factor in this is going to be a big player," said Chairman Robert Wheeler.
Several weeks ago, a petition began circulating which was signed by almost half of the 54 on-call firefighters, asking selectmen to allow the chief to write and present a 24-hour full-time staffing plan.
The petition calls for at least one of the three fire stations to have full-time employees 24 hours per day, seven days a week. The call staff would be used as needed.

50. Planning For The Ultimate One Computer Classroom
Now you have a virtual classroom, ready to take trips around the globe. Schoolsshould plan for direct Internet connections over a WAN .
Planning for the Ultimate One Computer Classroom Over the years there have been many writings on how to deal with one computer in a classroom. As more schools get connected to the world wide web and add technology to the school infrastructure, the question still remains ; If I only have one computer in my classroom , what is the most effective way to share Internet resources with a room full of eager children ? Here are some ideas to consider before breaking out your surfboard. Take Baby steps. You are the one familiar with your curriculum. Begin to target specific sites that match what you already teach. There are places on the Internet that identify quality sites and give descriptions of what topics and age levels they are appropriate for. Examples of such places include Classroom Connect on the Net The Global Schoolhouse , and our own Montgomery County Intermediate Unit . If you match one or two sites per topic that you teach, it is a great start. Plan for how you can best "share" your monitor. Not all of us can afford expensive projection units that provide large colorful displays of the web. So the problem remains . How can I share this great Internet connection with my twenty-five pupils ?

    Why Did You Start Home Schooling?
    by Marilyn Wilkerson
    "Why did you start home schooling your son?" That's a question I've been asked over and over and over again. Even as the number of home-educated children grows and grows, there are still so many people who just don't understand why we do this!
    For many years, I worked as a party plan sales manager and earned a pretty good income. I worked my way up to Regional Director, and in addition to the good income, I earned trips almost every year. My son was able to go on those trips. At four, he had the best Disney World vacation any child (or adult!) could ever imagine. At age eight, he even traveled to Hawaii!
    Unfortunately, the career I had chosen when Derek was just a baby so that I could stay at home with him and still earn money became my life. I had to have an office away from home, because our "bedroom community" did not allow any home businesses. When I was at home, I was on the phone all evening long. And many evenings, I was off holding parties or sales meetings or training events. I justified all of this by saying that Derek was fortunate to be able to travel with me. I also justified it by saying that because of the income I earned, he was able to go to great (or so we thought!) private Christian schools.

    About Northwest Mountain School Who Are We
    The Northwset Mountain School specializes in adventure travel programs in the Pacific Northwest U.S., Canada, and Alaska.
    Type of program: Wilderness expeditions
    Class size: 8-10 students per group
    Head of Program: John Race, Director Location:
    The Northwest Mountain School is located in Leavenworth, WA. Leavenworth is home to world class backpacking, skiing, rock climbing, fly fishing, mountain biking, and just about any other outdoor activity you may be interested in. Most programs take place in the mountain ranges within a few hours drive from Seattle. Locations vary from original-growth forests and alpine glaciers to sage-brush deserts and rivers in the Olympics, Cascades, and Alaska. Most trips start at the Seattle-Tacoma airport, and then proceed to a base area in the Cascades. Background and Philosophy
    The Northwest Mountain School was formed in 1994 to give young people the opportunity to experience purposeful trips in the backcountry. John Race, a professional mountain guide for 13 years, started NMS to combine his love of mountain environments with his extensive mountain guiding experience. Students spend time honing camping, climbing, and paddling skills, while also having the opportunity to study the plants, animals, geology, and history of the Pacific Northwest. During the adventures, friendships are formed that will last a lifetime. Every NMS program seeks to teach safe back country travel, while encouraging fun, goal-oriented activities in mountain environments . The physical and intellectual challenges encountered in the Pacific Northwest mountains offer time for reflection and personal growth during activities led by professional mountain guides and naturalists.

    Enter your email address: Kidsafe Newz April 2004 Newsletter Archives Safety Tips: School Safety: Using Risk to Assess School Trips As we head into the final months of the school year, many schools will close out the year by planning field trips for the children. Some trips will be educational; others are planned with only fun in mind. And, depending on the ages of the children involved, some may involve overnight stays, while others will only last a few hours. As might be expected, quite a bit of planning and preparation go into these trips to make sure the children are safe while away from school. Unfortunately, regardless how much planning and preparation is done or how many precautions are taken, accidents sometimes still occur. As a result, many school districts are taking a harder look at their school trip policies and adopting a risk-based approach to determining the types of trips their

    Whitman Mission NHS - Education

    Why visit Whitman Mission NHS? In 1836 Dr. Marcus and Mrs. Narcissa Whitman crossed the United States from New York to "Oregon Country" with Henry and Eliza Spalding and William Gray. Narcissa and Eliza became the first white women to cross the Rocky mountains. The Whitmans set up a mission at Waiilatpu, where they intended to teach the Cayuse how to read and write, how to farm, and about the Christian gospel. In 1843, Marcus Whitman helped guide the first wagon train to take wagons all the way to the Willamette Valley. Tragically in 1847, rumors, cultural differences, and mis-communication led to the deaths of the Whitmans and eleven others by several Cayuse after a measles outbreak had decimated the tribe. The events of 1836 to 1847 here at Whitman Mission played a significant role in American and Cayuse history in the Pacific Northwest. It is an excellent place to learn about the Cayuse and other plateau Indians, and the missionary movement in the Northwest, and the early Oregon Trail. One of the reasons this site is such a valuable educational experience is that this is where the Whitman Mission was actually located. When you wander the grounds you are retracing the steps of the Whitmans, the Cayuse, and countless Oregon Trail emigrants.
