Our class had the awesome experience to collaborate with a Kindergarten class at our school. Students prepared and followed a lesson plan to perform a Close Read with a Kindergarten Buddy. They circled important words and underlined things that were confusing. Each second grader had to read with their buddy and help explain the new vocabulary.
After reading, students wrote down new facts their buddy learned and ventured out into the hall. In the hall there were life size drawings of penguins we were studying. The Kindergarteners were excited to see if they were taller or shorter than the Emperor Penguin who is 4 feet tall. Here are the pictures from our day together.
