Well this is just downright adorable. Kindergarten students (and their teacher) made this video of them reading the book Miss Nelson Is Missing and I love it.
Michelle Gohagon's insight:

Katy Reddick, the Latin teacher at Strong Middle School, share this AMAZING video of kindergarten students retelling the story Miss Nelson is Missing. After watching the video, my first thought was 'that was the CUTEST thing I have ever seen', and my second thought was WE NEED TO DO THIS! Whether it be the retelling of a story, an historical event, or acting out a math problem-how can we make learning come to life? How can we get students completely engrossed in the process? I think Mr. Avina and his kindergartners have an answer. Thanks Katy for sharing this!
