the huge ladybug presentation

emery had her first big project/presentation in kinder.  she chose ladybugs as her topic.  she had to do the research, come up with a project and do a five minute presentation for the class.  she rocked it!
i got some pictures of her preparing her project, a painted book of the life cycle of a ladybug.
