Little Professors

Submitted by patty.tew on Mon, 12/10/2012 - 22:54

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.
