Kindergarten/Grade One Buddies

Well, well, well. We might not be that old yet ourselves in Grade 2/3 but we have little buddies! Ms. McFarlane brought her K/1 class up to our room today to see the class and share a story. This is the start of our weekly buddy reading time. How exciting!

Ms. Gelson read us Me Hungry! by Jeremy Tankard

This is a fabulous little book with very little text about a ravenous “cave boy” who decided to catch his own dinner when everyone was too busy to feed him. However, his prey aren’t all that keen on being eaten!

We shared some laughs today and lots of excitement about our future buddy reading.

Some different reactions from my class:

“You mean really we are going to be the BIG buddies?” (Yup!)

“But I can’t even really read.” (You know – not a problem – looking through a picture book and talking counts!)

Can’t wait for next week!
