Jackson Elementary School - Judith Kerrigan-Krodel and Michelle Gholl - 7.00 hours
It was another great day at Jackson Elementary! Some of the students had Spring picture day, so it was fun to see them all dressed up for photos. I was able to help the students out with their writing assignments and math. They have this app they use on their iPads that help them practice with mental math. The biggest challenge is keeping them focused on the app–they love to "Airdrop" each other funny pictures! In Ms. Kerrigan's class, the students were writing about what they had learned at Jackson thus far to show parents at conferences. I loved seeing what the students chose–they wrote about things like math, learning Hmong, reading skills, and their favorite academic games.
I also was able to meet Ms. Betsy, who is a guest art teacher that comes in every so often. The students have told me lots about her, so I was happy to finally meet her. She is such a kind and compassionate person! She assigned the students to make a friendly monster based on the book Leonardo the Terrible Monster that she read to the class. The students made some awesome monsters. They are all such creative students. I hope that I get to work with Ms. Betsy again!
