First Grade/Fifth Grade Buddy Activity

Who doesn’t love having a buddy?

Mr. Troy Harris’ fifth grade students love to visit their first grade buddies in Mrs. Kimberly Hall’s class. Last week, the two groups met to talk about spring and how they are “blooming” as students. Their visit started with a riveting reading of “Leo the Late Bloomer” by Robert Kraus. After reading the book the students made inferences and made personal connections with their buddies. The students then created flowers detailing all of the ways they have “bloomed” this school year. Everyone had a wonderful time.
