Students teaching students

Some of my advanced second graders thoroughly enjoyed teaching the art lesson to the kindergarteners! Each day the second graders would see me, they would ask, “Is today the day we can teach them sculpture?” The day came and the sense of empowerment that the second graders gained could be seen and sensed within my class. Thank you Dixie for encouraging our kids to be leaders!
