4th Graders Help Kindergarten Students
Posted 10/13/2017 03:35PM
Students in Mrs. Cookson's 4th grade class at Emerson-Williams have been working to read "with their noses in the book" and notice details about their characters in order to develop an interpretation. This week they applied these new strategies to closely read and interpret photographs.
Today they met with their buddies in Mrs. Dawson's classroom to help the kindergarten students "look closely" at photographs and "label them like scientists". 4th graders helped their buddies notice all the small details, identify and write beginning sounds in words, and stretch to spell "tricky" words.
This collaboration truly integrated the focus of the 4th grade reading unit and the kindergarten writing unit!
