I saw a shirt on a recent blog post with a photograph of a kid at Disney World. The shirt said in those famously happy Disney letters something like "Shhh...My Teacher Doesn't Know I'm at Disney World!"
If you didn't know, I am a kindergarten teacher. I love my job. I mean love it. I have the best days filled with learning, fun, and the best kiddos this side of the moon! I love seeing their eyes light up when we learn new things! I love talking Disney with them! That's why I am the opposite of most teachers. When parents tell me (before they know me) in fully hunched posture that they are planning a trip to Disney, I get pumped. It is like a piece of me is at Disney when one of my sweet sweet babies is there. That is why I created a Disney travel bag. Today I am talking about taking it on the road. Why not make a Disney trip fun and educational? This bag is full of fun and today I am breaking it down for you!
I send home these items in a recycle friendly shopping bag (Disney of Course):
- A variety of Disney books for reading in the car and during down time at the hotel.
- A Stitch stuffed animal for squeezing on the ride and after returning to the hotel each night!
- A journal for writing about your trip once you get home!
- Personalized park friendly homework! (want it for your kid or students? Click here and have this gift from me to you! Just point your recipient to Disney Done Right Blog for planning and tips! This was created with a kindergarten kid in mind so you can amp up or down where needed!)
I make sure to tell my parents that the homework is completely optional and can mostly be done outside of the parks. I suggest that the parents put the homework print off in their park bag and take a look at it on the ride into the parks. The "answers" and work can be filled in at the hotel or even once they return from their trip! This is a fun way to get parents involved and I LOVE seeing the results once the child gets back! Now this is homework anyone would love! I hope you will find this fun and helpful!
