Student Grammarians

Last week Morah Vered’s sixth grade Language Arts students taught a grammar lesson to Mrs. Baylin’s first graders. This undertaking began with four sixth graders, including Sarah H., Morgan S., Sarah R., and Amanda T., who volunteered to work during lunch/recess to create a PowerPoint presentation, an interactive ENO board activity, and a handout that teaches the proper uses of the articles A versus AN. This group presented the lesson and activities to their fellow sixth graders who, in turn, offered valuable feedback and suggested changes. Once the lesson and all of its parts were finalized, the entire class visited the first graders and led what proved to be an informative, fun, and successful lesson. The first graders were terrific participants; they were attentive, engaged, and excited to welcome the middle school students to their classroom.
