Every week in River Class we will have a Big Fish. Each River student gets to be the Big Fish once during the school year.

Big Fish duties include:
1. Leading the lines
2. Calling the roll
3. Sharing every day of the week except for Mondays (includes 'live' shares such as pets and/or family members)
4. Sits on the Big Fish bench
5. Gets to choose people to sit with them (must have everyone at least one time) at the Big Fish table
