N. Babylon HS, Kindergarten Take Part in Cooperative Education Project

Students help create, plan and evaluate mini-lessons for kindergarten at Marion G. Vedder Elementary School.

Mrs. Dolezai's high school class has continued its cooperative education project with Mrs. Gryn's kindergarten class at the Marion G. Vedder Elementary School, allowing elder students to create, plan and evaluate mini-lesson plans for the younger students.

The project, which began during the 2011-12 school year, has reportedly been a success into its second year, providing each person involved with a "wonderful and valuable experience."

Mrs. Dolezal’s students get the opportunity to explore potential careers with children for the future, are able to use their life experiences to relate to others, and they serve as role models for the kindergarten students. 

Mrs. Gryn’s class brings out a whole new side to the high school students –  they present them with the opportunity to be positive role models as well as to put the knowledge they have learned to a real life situation.

Younger children need role models, as many as possible. Children should not only have adults to look up to but older children and even their peers as well. Its the power of teamwork, of being a hero to someone. Team Dawg thanks you all for such a great program!
