I run an enrichment group at school where twice a week I work with a small group of kids who can afford to miss some class time. The sessions run for 3-6 weeks, depending on the topic, and teachers chose which students to send. For my upcoming enrichment group Eve’s teacher chose Eve to go. I was talking to Eve about it the other day and said I was thinking about doing either electricity or book reviews. She wasn’t thrilled with those options. :) She is pretty set on doing a research project about the topic of your choice and presenting it in the way of your choice (prezi, glogster, poster, Google presentation, etc.)
Tonight while I was laying with her I told her I just didn’t feel prepared for an enrichment group about research. She said, “That’s ok mom, we can do it together this weekend! We’ll start with a rubric.” The conversation went from there. When I left her we agreed to work together this weekend on it. When I went to check on her just now I found this:
I love that girl! We’ve got education in our blood!
