Online websites allowed them to explore exciting places they had never been before, but needed to be watchful for those "jungle lions" that could be ready to pounce. They learned how to be good citizens and make responsible choices.
Discussions were then held as to what to do if they got lost and had to find their way back home. The fourth grade students were taught that they should never give out personal information such as addresses, last names...
Mrs. Jackie Babin's Pre-K class learned about their community and invited a special community member, Mrs. Kaci White Boudreaux. Mrs. Kaci is a hairdresser at Headlines. Mrs. Kaci spoke to the children about what tools she uses, what time she goes to work and leaves, and what it takes to be a hairdresser. One student volunteered to have her hair cut by Mrs. Kaci. Kinley David was the lucky one to get her a trim.
Mrs. Jackie and her class would like to say "Thank You" to Mrs. Kaci for being a GREAT service provider to our community and sharing her expertise with False River Academy.
