The students in Kristin Almy’s fourth grade class and the kindergartners in Kari McIntyre’s class at Mariposa Elementary School have joined together as reading buddies. The older students designed lessons that involved reading, writing and art that related to bats and spiders. Raelynn Lanni, lieft, and Gabriela Prado, pictured, were paired together to complete the activities. The kindergartners then performed “The Very Busy Spider” by Eric Carle for their buddies. The students had a great time learning from each other!
