Some very famous folks showed up at Smith!

Mrs. Richardson's second graders each chose a famous person to research. Then, they spent time in class reading biographies and taking notes to write a first person speech.

They presented their speeches and fabulous visual aids to third graders.

What a great group of subjects!
