Second grade traveled to Pillow Elementary today to read with their Pre-K 4 students. We laughed and played together! The second grade students said, “We made new friends. We made their faces light up.” The students were amazing and I was so proud to be their teacher. They LOVED having their own buddy for the whole morning. They read to them, played with them on the playground, and then ate lunch with them. Each Hyde Park student was kind, respectful, and acted like a leader. We are excited to go back tomorrow!
Tomorrow, 2nd grade is heading over to Pillow Elementary to read with their Pre-K 4 students. In preparation, the second graders read to our own 4K students today! We had the chance to show 4K students new words and numbers from the books that they might not have known which could have inspired them to read more and grow their love for reading. We showed them love by smiling and using kind words the entire time! We have not had many chances to partner with the 4K group specifically this year so it was fun to see their faces light up when they met someone new and read silly books together. Each 2nd grader had a big smile on their face the entire time we were reading. The joy in the classroom was evident from start to the end!
