We have not had a chance to see our Learning Buddies very much lately. 5th Graders are busy people! When we heard they were busy tackling a Read-a-Thon on Friday, we knew we wanted to join in! While they were spending their whole day (6 hours!) enjoying a book, we were only able to be there for a little chunk of that time. Some Rm. 202 friends suggested we should plan our own read-a-thon, though, for a future date, too!
Before we came to visit them, Dr. Grayson’s room had a lesson with Mrs. Meihaus, our amazing librarian, about how to read to a younger student. Our buddies were then armed with their “lesson plan” and shared really great books with us after lunch. It was so much fun! Oh, and it was also Hat Day at our school to raise money for the NIYO Cultural Center in Rwanda (Hi, Pacifique!), which added to the festive spirit. Enjoy some pictures of our afternoon!
