Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently made their own armadillos.
CES second-grade teacher Tracey Rinehart read the book “Armadillo Tattletale” by Helen Ketteman to the first-grade students.
The book is about the armadillo’s habit of eavesdropping and then making his animal friends angry when he tells their secrets.
Rinehart talked to students about the importance of keeping some information to themselves, and when it’s proper to tell other people.
Afterward, students used construction paper to make their very own armadillos.
At Wings Express, students receive help with reading, math, science, technology, social skills and more. They also participate in activities to learn about nutrition.
Wings Express students stay at school from 3 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 1 to 3 p.m. on Fridays for activities.
There are no Wings Express activities on Wednesdays.
Students are given a snack and then divided into groups to participate in programs that best fit their needs.
About 90 students will participate in the Wings Express program.
Amanda Barnett is Wings Express director.
