Some of you may remember last year when my Kindergartener had to do her first research report on lions. We had been told the standards had changed and now all children were required to do a research report beginning in Kindergarten. This year was no different. Laura Beth has actually had to do two research projects. One was on a community helper. She chose a teacher and I went to the class to talk to them about being a teacher. No, I did not blog about that because I did not have pictures of it and I don't like being on my blog!!! Her second research project was on one of our nation's monuments. She chose the war memorials but focused on the WWII memorial. She gave her facts about the memorial and then brought her Great Papa Whittle to class to talk about WWII and his visit to the memorial in September. She also brought the scrapbook I had made Papa to show pictures of the memorial to the class. She did a great job and Papa was wonderful telling the children about the war, the memorial and his visit to our nation's capital. What a great team they made!
