Today our big buddies visited. This was a little different because their normal visits are on Thursdays. This was because of something that came up in their schedule, we were able to plan a visit for Friday morning instead. The Otters and their big buddies continued practicing the retelling rope in preparation for the story they will begin writing in two weeks. The buddies will prepare to write a story together after brainstorming the character, the setting, the problem and the solution. This will happen over the next four or five visits before they publish their story. The buddies are excited to start collaborating on their story together.
The first grade and kindergarten students of the Otter class invite you to explore our site and enjoy this reflection of our school life.
