Last Week...The Kids Took Over!

Goodness Gracious Great Balls of Fire! I am officially on Summer Vaca!  Hurrah!
That being said, our last week was a lot of fun!   

My wonderful teach colleague had done "Teacher for A Day" a couple of years ago, so I thought that I would try it this year!  It mostly went really well.  There is a few things I would tweak, but the kiddos came up with some great ideas!  They had a great time learning:
How to play Chinese Checkers.

About Rocks and Minerals.

How to draw a bird.

How to make a pet rock.


No cook s'mores!

We also learned a dance from India, some cheerleading cheers, a song, about the human body, folding paper airplanes and how to warm up for gymnastics!

The kiddos got a huge kick out of teaching their friends.  I heard more than once: "Mrs. Gard!  Teaching is hard!"  All I could do was smile!

    1. I was amazed at how much fun "Teacher for a day" was! Some of the kiddos even dressed up and brought in a "lesson plan". It was great! Thanks for stopping by Justin!

  3. Fun idea - maybe you should have done it at the first of the year, so they'd know earlier how hard teaching is :)
