Book Buddies Bonanza!

We had a fantastic bit of time this afternoon reading with grade one buddies. We can learn a whole lot from them!

This is how it works:

1. We (the grade fours) partner up a grade one student.

2.  The grade one student brings their “GOOD FIT” books with them and reads a page to us.

3.  We listen to and coach the new reader – offering strategies when needed.

4.  The grade one student then listens to us read with fluency and expression. 

5.  Every time a page is completed – the listener summarizes the events and characters that they’ve learned about.

It was fantastic. We practice active listening, summarizing of main events, and fluent reading. The grade ones have a super cool friend to read to and get helpful tips from.

Adventures in Orienteering!

We DO love orienteering.  Practicing fun, fitness and fairplay while using our mapping skills to find markers is a great activity in these last few days of warm, summer weather.  We’re problem solving, using teamwork and deepening our understanding of new skills. Outstanding!
