Northport K-8 students in Susan Matteson’s eighth grade reading class and young students in Lorri Lamm’s second grade class have been cultivating learning relationships to benefit each learning level and style. Students and teachers have been meeting twice a month since the beginning of the school year to bond and integrate learning systems. Students recently met to select words from second grade student lists, review the definitions and pronunciations and then to make costumes to portray the meaning of the words selected. Students will participate in a vocabulary roundup parade in January. Pictured are learning buddies from both classes, from left, Karla Montoya, Jada Gunn, Malcolm Mungin and Josias Palma.
