Bonus #1 – It was a sunny day 🙂 This beautiful lady saved the mission when Talia forgot to bring the money for the photos… lesson learned!

Mission #2: Hijacked! Isabel goes ROGUE!

After her first fieldtrip went into overtime (Wednesday’s trip to North Vancouver), Isabel was determined to do better! When the clock struck one, she quickly sent everyone through the bathroom and right out the door! They didn’t have their missions!

When I tried to contact them, she maintained radio silence (or missed the call), but when they arrived at the destination she checked in.

She, Maksim, Ruby, Raffael, and Grant huddled around her walkie-talkie (AKA cell phone) while I picked their Photo Mission and Bring Back items out of the box to relay.

Photo Mission: Kid Hugging a Tree

Bring Back: A feather

It was Earth Day last week, so the missions were right on the money, and while they didn’t see a single feather (it started to rain when they left the exhibition), all was made well when she submitted her final report: Triple Points!

Mission #1: Make new cubby cards

Written by Talia

Cubby Card Mission: Accomplished – New High Score! – 25 pts.!!

Lara and Isabel drew a pro crew of Big Kids for their mission to Staples:

Maksim, Jackson, Carter, Rolland, Felix, and Grant loved the idea of taking on “secret missions.” It took no time at all to have them fully engaged, and when they saw the mystery mission box, they were even more on board.

For each additional mission they picked, they could earn up to 10 points, with 3 bonus points for extra photos.

Mission Scoring Card:

Doing the mission on budget (2 pts., within 25% = 1pt.)

On time (by 4pm = 2pts., by 6pm = 1pt.)

Ratio Bonus* (1:4 = 2pts., 1:3 = 1pt.)

Photo Evidence (clear photo = 2 pts., explanation req’d = 1pt.)

Lesson Learned (2 pts.)

Additional Bonus Photos – up to 3 BONUS pts. possible – explanations required :

So here’s how they did:

Main Mission: Make new Cubby Cards

Help a teacher: Talia!

Bring Back:

Photo Bonus

Added Challenge:

Destination: Staples on Broadway Buy tape refills and file tabs at Staples 1lb. of coffee Person wearing a hat Charge the Compass Card
Points earned: 5 7 5 8 0
New cubby cards: Check! Tape, tabs, and coffee: check, check… check! “Mental Picture” snapped by Maksim. Not available for display. … next time… 🙁

It’s 25 out of a possible 50…

…so there’s room to improve. And that’s a good thing! By the time this season ends, both Lara and the kids will be accomplishment experts…

Plus! We have all new cubby cards! 🙂

Lara’s writing her university exams next week, but before she left, she drew the mission card for her next class:

Mission #2: Refresh the Staff Photo Wall – Apr. 29, from 1 – 4pm

So next Friday, Isabel and the kids will be researching various techniques, as part of the Capture Photography Festival happening all over town, all this month.

Join them, Apr. 22, from 1 – 4pm, and find all the fieldtrips, on our Events Calendar.

Accomplishment as a goal

April 7, 2016
Written by Talia

When people achieve goals, it creates a positive feeling in themselves, about their abilities, and their perseverance.

Accomplishment is best delivered in regular doses, and research among entrepreneurs shows that setting short-term, achievable goals and celebrating successes not only leads to better learning, it also builds confidence to get out there, and take over the world!

Make a list, and check it twice, because when you tick things off, dopamine (the neurotransmitter of pleasure) is your reward.

So the Spring season class, Mission Accomplished, that Lara and I are co-presenting, is giving the kids (and Lara) a chance to flex the dopamine muscles.

What else are we doing on Fridays, at Big Kids Club?

Mission Accomplished is a fieldtrip intensive class, with outings every week (the first of its kind!), and the opportunity for everyone to play a part.

Their first mission – already accepted – is to design, create, and laminate a new set of cubby cards. After that, Lara and the kids will be picking their tasks out of a hat, and making it up as they go along. With just 3 hours to complete each mission, the clock will be ticking, and no matter what they come up with, the reward will be seeing their work on display – in the cubby card bowl, garden boxes, on the walls and online.

Get your dopamine flowing! Join us, on Friday Apr. 15, from 1 – 4, for the season kick-off, and keep up with the action right here on the blog.

Mission Accomplished

April 4, 2016
Written by Talia

This season’s fieldtrip-intensive Friday afternoon class is the chance for our Big Kids to take on some of the big jobs around daycare.

Talia Erickson has a to-do list, and Lara Blacklock has the can-do attitude to make this class all about “doing” things.

We need to re-home our frog friends (into a bigger tank), and to plant the upside-down strawberry growing machine. We want to build a latch-board, and make new cubby cards for the kids.

Lara’s never done any of these jobs before, but with the help of… the internet, and her dynamic, anything-goes approach to accomplishment, she and the kids will spend Friday afternoons taking on Talia’s missions, and ticking the tasks off the list.

Join them, Fridays from 1 – 4, April to June.
