They started by showing their friends how to login to Mrs. Wolff's classroom account and start a blank book. Then they quickly moved on to the how to's of adding sentences and illustrations to their pages. It was so much fun to see these 4 slip so easily into teacher mode as they walked around their tables offering pointers and advice and answering questions that arose. Mrs. Wolff did a great job of mentoring her 4 trainers and encouraging their efforts. By the end of the hour, most of the students had completed 4 of their 8 pages!
I think that Mrs. Wolff would agree with me that this was a highly successful experiment - well worth trying again.
Thanks to Margie Brown for the fun stop motion video that she made of her visit to Jennifer's class!
Trainers in action...
Just for fun...
