Fun Fall Crafting at Connetquot

Second-grade and kindergarten reading buddies at Connetquot worked together on a fall craft for Fun Friday to show the changing colors of leaves in the fall.

Since the new school year began, Melissa Love’s second-grade students and Jennifer Rizzo's kindergartners have been reading together once a week to increase fluency and share the enjoyment of books. The second-graders enjoy reading to their younger schoolmates and helping them with projects.

“I like being buddies because they are fun to meet with and work with,” said second-grader Mark Speiss.
