2nd and 4th grade Reading/Writing Buddies

Ms. Willeford and Ms. W’s second graders have been buddying up with Ms. Sinagra’s fourth graders for reading and writing. Their classes have been working together to build fluency and expression in reading, and planning and organization in writing. The fourth graders prepared exciting read alouds for the second graders, and the second graders published chapter books with their fourth grade buddies.
