Our Kindergarteners had a chance to meet their third grade Big Buddies from Mrs. Goodman's class for the first time today. All of the Kindergarteners and third graders were so excited. Each Big and Little Buddy pair sat together to complete a mini interview form so they could get to know one another. They asked one another about names, ages, favorite food, animals, color, etc. Afterwards, the Little Buddies picked out books for their Big Buddies to read. Mrs. Goodman and I were so impressed today. Every child was  engaged and attentive. The third graders displayed extraordinary kindness, compassion, and affection towards their Kindergarten buddies. Some even naturally knelt down so their Little Buddies could see them better. Others used softer tones in their voices when speaking to their Little Buddies. The Little Buddies were so happy to listen to their Big Buddies read and wanted to show them all around the Kindergarten classroom. It was fantastic to observe, and I am so proud of our Room 2 Kindergarteners! Take a look at some of the adorable pictures!
