Mrs. Flaherty and Mrs Goldsmith's 3rd graders have some special new friends!
We are partnering with Mr. Chandler's 6th graders as part of a new mentoring program. The EMS 6th graders all came to meet us and teach us a new game in October.
They were paired with a 3rd grade buddy and there were smiles all around. Since then, 2-3 6th grade mentors have come to our classroom each day for 20 minute visits where they assist their partners with academics or join in our class activities.
Our students are really enjoying getting to know their student mentors and having them around each day.
We look forward to looking for other ways to expand these relationships. As teachers, we think having the 6th graders around is great and because Mr. Chandler has so many former EES kids in his class, we are enjoying reconnecting with some old friends!
