Kindergarten students visit with CMS 7th Graders

Molly Bickford, 7th Grade English Language Arts teacher, is partnering with Ashmore Kindergarten teacher, Emily Jacobs, on an exciting project. 7th Graders will work with Kindergarten students to publish a book focused on the Leader in Me 7 Habits. The two groups met together for the first time on Monday, February 24 to get to know each other. Mrs. Jacobs' Kindergarten class traveled to Charleston Middle School to meet their 7th grade "buddy." The older students read a children's book centered around social and emotional issues. Later this year, the two groups will meet at Booth Library to create their children's book together. Thank you to EIU for a grant that funded the publishing kits for their books.
