Friend-to-friend Brings Students Together

This past Wednesday, Grade 1 and Grade 5 students worked together in a Friend-to-Friend activity. First the students listened to a story read by Mr. Thaler. Each page of the book depicted a different country from around the world and a sentence with opposite words, such as weep and laugh. Grade 1 students were then paired with Grade 5 students to create new pages of their own. Ideas and designs were decided on together, with the Grade 5 students taking a leadership role.
