Am I Even Needed?

Today, one of my students brought in a plastic butterfly to show the details on the wing...we studied bees and this connects because of the insect family. As he shared, he talked about how he would show the butterfly. He gave the class two options...he could pass it or he could walk around showing it. One of the boys said, "Let's take a vote." (sounds a lot like me when I give them choices). Then after they decided...the boy overruled their vote and walked around showing the butterfly. I love that this class already has begun to be in charge of discussions and conversation. For a few minutes, I just sat and watched the class in action. They just absolutely amaze me!
