RPA Middle Schoolers Bring the Joy of Reading to Elementary Students
Ms. Kirk’s and Ms. Adam’s Wednesday Book Clubs have been studying features of children’s literature and learning strategies on how to teach reading to younger students (such as reading from left to right, pointing to every word, and reading with expression). Last Wednesday, they walked to Hugh Hartman Elementary and read with second grade students.
Kirk said students are looking forward to going there every other week to continue reading with their new buddy students. After reading on Wednesday, one RPA student proclaimed, “I’m going to be a Kindergarten teacher!”
“Our students loved meeting their buddies, seeing how excited they got about reading, and getting a chance to be the teachers,” Kirk said.
