Elders Are …

Second grade teacher Herb shared the following video with guests at grandparents and special friends day. First and second grade students completed an activity in which they drew, wrote, and spoke their thoughts about the elders in their lives.

I’m impressed with the ease that these students demonstrate in front of the microphone. Recording audio may in fact be less distracting than video. You get to observe student work while listening to an oral expression — two forms of work at the same time. It’s also fascinating to see the huge range of student responses to the prompt “elders are …”

I’m sure that Herb put many hours into the creation of this video. One day, I’ll find out how many.

We are pleased to share this video on our website, especially for the grandparents and special friends who were not able to attend.
