The time I took my students to the top of the Carew Tower...
One thing I absolutely love about my job is being downtown. I never in a million years would have pictured myself teaching downtown, but God knew what I wanted more than I did! My second graders have been studying community so instead of just looking at books I decided we needed to get out in the city ourselves. We had a field trip already planned to walk to the patent office to get some of their inventions patented so we went from there to the Carew Tower to get a view of our city! The Carew Tower is one of the tallest buildings in Cincinnati and you can go all the way to the top and get a great panoramic view. On the way to the Carew Tower the kids wrote down all the community workers they saw along with all the places that provided a good vs. a service. It was so fun to be out downtown with my students. Just watching them get excited talking about Skyline providing us with goods made my little teacher heart happy.
We were 49 stories up (574 feet above our city) and so many of my students and their parents had never seen this view of Cincinnati. It was amazing seeing their faces light up seeing the Bengals stadium, our school, the river, etc. I really wish I could share their sweet faces with you, but I think these pictures show you enough. We had an amazing time together and I can't believe how quickly my time with them has gone this year! We only have 2 1/2 days left and I am getting sad thinking about my kids moving on.
Do you have a place like this in your city? If you live in Cincinnati or ever visit I highly recommend taking in the view from on top of the Carew Tower!
