Book Buddies - Week 2
While I posted some pictures of our kick-off Book Buddies session last week with Mrs. Doyle's and Mrs. Carroll's 1st graders, I'm posting more pictures today from yesterday's session since this session epitomized the objectives of Book Buddies, i.e., 4th graders reading to 1st graders to promote reading, listening, and speaking skills for all. I was so impressed with the maturity shown by 4th graders as they read to their 1st grade buddies. Fourth graders not only read beautifully, but they discussed the words and pictures jumping from the pages with their 1st grade buddies to encourage "active listening" skills.
