Today my class is going on a walk to theta pond. Before we go on our walk, we need to get ready to go. Follow along with me and I will tell you how I get ready to go!
First we pick up our toys in the classroom, and put the toys where they belong. If I finish cleaning up my toys, I can help my friends clean up their toys.
Once our class is all cleaned up, we have to dress for the weather.
We always have to wear shoes when we go outside. If it is really cold, we get to wear our coats. I like to help my friends zip up their jackets if they cannot do it yet.
If I need help getting ready, I ask my teacher and say "help please"
Next we find a seat in the cart. I like riding in the cart. I get to sit with my friends and choose my seat. After I sit down, I have to buckle up. Sometimes I help my friends buckle their seatbelt.
Now we are all ready to go on our walk. Yippee! I wonder what we will see…. There are so many things that my eyes can help me see.
We go outside through the playground. The teacher closes the gate behind us. I use my eyes to see around me. What do you think we will see on our walk?
On our walk to Theta Pond we see one orange bus.
On our walk to Theta Pond we see one orange bus and two squirrels playing together.
On our walk to Theta Pond we see one orange bus, two squirrels playing, and three trees swaying in the wind.
On our walk to Theta Pond we see one orange bus, two squirrels playing, three trees swaying, and four students walking. As the students pass they say "hello".
On our walk to Theta Pond we see one orange bus, two squirrels playing, three trees swaying, four students walking, and five bicycle tires.
Oh my! Look! We made it to Theta Pond. My eyes have helped me see one orange bus, two squirrels playing, three trees swaying, four students walking, and five bicycle tires. What do you think we will see at Theta Pond today?
What do your eyes see at Theta Pond?
Whew, thankyou for taking a walk with me today. I liked having you and my friends come along on the walk. Maybe tomorrow we can do it again! Until then, goodbye!
