Read Ann Feldman’s Summary of the Program here: http://bit.ly/1kw0P12
Ann Feldman, an Instructional Technology Trainer for Bellevue Public Schools, has written an articulate and compelling summary of the activities, learning objectives addressed (Bellevue Public Schools Essential Objectives, which correlate to Nebraska State Standards) and the emotional skills the students learned and practiced during their three weeks with CritterKin. To quote Feldman, “Freedom in the creation process added student ownership and passion for the project. Teamwork and collaboration are essential… In sharing all of our strengths, students benefit and the process of teaching and learning is joyful.”
Celebrate with Us!
