Mrs. Mindy Collins, second grade teacher at El Dorado Christian, has added a creative learning tool to her classroom. Bob the Monkey has introduced the students to a new and exciting approach to class assignments. Each week, a different student will take Bob home and journal daily about their adventures; then give a presentation to the class. This activity promotes confidence, public speaking skills, creative writing and responsibility and introduces journaling.
