April 30 Visit to Calvert Elementary School
On Friday afternoon, April 30, I enjoyed 90 + minutes of fun and excitement with some 50+ Third Graders at Calvert Elementary School in Auburn, NE.
In the preceding two photographs, the youngsters show off the pictures of various birds--from Northern Cardinals to Yellow-shafted Flickers--they colored after learning to identify various birds by sight and by sound.
As the video on You Tube indicates, the talented students learned a few bird songs and enjoyed themselves:
Wendy (Alexander) Fulton arranged for the visit with the combined third-grade classes; and I was pleased--as happened a couple weeks earlier on April 18 when I did another Feathers and Verses program for fifth graders at Paddock Lane School in Beatrice--to see another Peru State College student doing his student teaching, Taylor Dunekacke, winner of this year's Scroll of Service Award.
I was thrilled to receive the following gifts from the students--and see the photographs from the visit--and look forward to a return trip to Calvert Elementary School.
