I was honored to again be a guest teacher at a local school and share my love of Theodore Roosevelt with two third grade classrooms. I am still finessing the lessons, but with any teaching, each time improves. TR is the president of study for the district's third grade students. As he is my favorite (the more I learn, the more I want to learn), I have a grand time sharing my collection of period artifacts including a stereoscope, period purse and collar box, a camera and other fun treasures.
As we were wrapping up, one of the students came up to me and announced that the afternoon was "better than field day!" I think that was a great way to end the day. Wish I could spend more time teaching kids history all day long!
