ST. PAUL PARK, Minn. (WCCO) — Some kindergartners at a Twin Cities elementary school got a big surprise Wednesday.
Students at Pullman Elementary School in St. Paul Park have been using a WCCO foam microphone to interview other students and teachers about a book they read called “Love is.” Their teacher, Mrs. Mach, said it made them more confident in the classroom.READ MORE: Hopkins Police Investigating Homicide At Apartment Building
“I have a lot of shy kids in my class but when they have the microphone they just went right up to kids and went ‘What is love!'” Mach said.
WCCO decided to show a little love back. Reporter Kate Raddatz showed up for a surprise visit, with enough WCCO microphones for the whole class.READ MORE: Mass Casualty Simulation Helps Nat'l Guard, Children's Minnesota Practice Treating Kids
“This is Cora for WCCO,” 6-year-old Cora said, speaking into her new microphone.
“I think your reporters may have some people coming up that could take their jobs,” Mach laughed.
The students were already using their new microphones Wednesday, raising their hands and then answering spelling questions into their new mics. Mach said she may have to tweak the class plan to see how she can work the mics in if class participation keeps up.MORE NEWS: Amid Missionary Hostage Crisis, Minnesotan From Port-Au-Prince Wishes 'Haiti Would Get The Help They Need'
