RTC Teacher Cadet Instructor
On October 19th, Russell Technology Center Teacher Cadets participated in the Read for the Record Campaign. Read for the Record "brings much needed attention to inequities in early childhood education, inspires adults to read with children, spurs policymakers and organizations to take action towards transformative change in early education, and puts books in the hands of children across the country." In support of the campaign, the Cadets read to 215 students from the Greenwood County Early Childhood Center. They also incorporated songs, fingerplays and created puppets to engage the four-year-old students. This year’s campaign book was Quackers, by Liz Wong, a wonderful story that follows a kitten who grows up believing he is a duck. This tale is about understanding, acceptance, and learning it’s okay to be whoever you want to be. The cadets enjoyed sharing this sweet story about friendship, understanding and being different.
