Well…it’s time to unleash a secret I’ve been holding onto for quite some time. Are you ready to hear it? It’s big and it’s exciting!
Parker Goes to School
I’m not talking about just any school, or some imaginary school. I’m talking about a real classroom with real kids and a real teacher. That’s right Parker went to first grade in Mrs. Charlene Howell’s classroom.
Mrs. Howell is using Parker as a motivational tool and basis of inspiration for teaching her first graders how to write. That’s correct, Parker is helping with first grade writing! It’s still new in the school year, but the students are already writing very well.
The Assignment: In Mrs. Howell’s Own Words
“I introduced my class to Parker today. I told them that he really wanted to come to first grade, so he was sent to make us smile. They (the children) really were all smiles and thought he was so cute. I told them to write what they thought Parker would do in first grade. I didn’t have my camera ready when I introduced him to the class. I wish you could have seen their faces…”
I love how every child had a different story for Parker. And here’s what I found out. Parker is a normal kid, just like they are! He does to same things, has the same friends, and wants to learn, play, and explore. Click here to see more of Mrs. Howell’s class assignments.
Parker will be writing to the children periodically to tell them about his adventures and what he has found recently. I can’t wait to see what the children will do with Parker and where they will take him. He’s going to have a GREAT time in first grade, I just know it!
