Hello, neighbor

For this lesson, we pretended to be Dutch children living in New Amsterdam. Like any child who walks around their neighborhood and is sent on errands, we got to know the shops on our block very well. At the end of the lesson, we gave other children a tour of our street and its workshops!

Do you live on De Heere, or Gansevoort?

Getting to know our reading buddies

Last week our class met their reading buddies from Jenny’s class. Since the little ones are just getting to know us, we went down to their room. The first graders’ eyes were huge with wonder and excitement as big fourth graders entered the classroom, overpowering the tiny furniture. Soon little buddies had been introduced to big buddies, and everyone got into their reading…

Who is your child’s reading buddy? What is their favorite part of reading to the first graders?
