Room 4G students have been doing a lot to prepare for our first buddy visit today! Last week, students carefully selected wonderful "Just Right" books to share with their 2nd grade buddies. This week, students discussed and practiced strategies for giving a great read aloud to a younger reader--including using an expressive voice, tracking the text with a finger, and asking juicy questions!
Today, full of excitement and anticipation, 4G students visited Room 2C and met their buddies for the first time! The 2nd graders kindly welcomed us into their classroom and the 4th graders did a great job engaging their new friends with terrific read alouds. We had such a great time and can't wait for our next get together!
