Mrs. Montgomery's Kindergartners have taken over the teaching in their classroom on Fridays. The children spend the week being read to, with, and by their parents from a book they take home from school. They plan and execute a project to share with the class that has to do with what they read or some other subject of interest. They give a step-by-step report to the class. Pictured are examples of this valuable language experience enjoyed by the Kindergartners:
Olivia Keller taught about bugs.
Joseph Aragundi taught us the body parts of an insect.
Several students at Rees Elementary were recognized and celebrated for their hard work and positive example they demonstrated to other students. An assembly was held to congratulate them on their great choices. Picture #1Back...Mason Hamberlin, Jackson Doddridge, Karla Pimentel, Jayce Bissegger, Kyler Moulton, Abigail FordhamFront...
