Today we got together with two of our first grade classes and did some buddy reading! Mrs. Bristle’s class joined Mrs. Boyden’s class and Mrs. Kenney’s class teamed up with Miss Luce’s. We had such a great time reading books to our first grade friends and listening to them read to us. We hope to join them frequently throughout the year. Our goal is to eventually pair up for different subjects like Math and Science.
I was really impressed with how nicely our fourth graders modeled appropriate behavior. They were proactive by practicing their books ahead of time and modeling good behavior for the first grade students. They also did a great job helping the first graders sound out their words and read their books.
