K002 – Buddy Classes and Pajama Day!

It was wonderful meeting with many of you last night at Parent Teacher Conferences. PTC’s always remind me how very much our children are cared about and loved.  We teachers feel grateful for the new things we learn about our students and feel even better equipped to meet their needs here at school.  Thank you for sharing them with us!

This year, each class at BSI has been paired with a buddy class. K-002 students were paired up with a 7th grade buddy or two.  We wrote greeting cards to our buddies and received cards from them.  Earlier this week, we got to meet our buddies.  When we had our buddy time, each kindergartner chose a favorite emergent storybook to share with his/her buddy.  The buddies read together and even acted out some of the stories.  We are looking forward to doing more activities with our buddy class throughout the year.  Click here to see some pictures from our first buddy time! 

Happy Pajama Day! Our kindergartners had a fun day today in their pajamas.  We had a great morning meeting and introduced our stuffed animals to the class.  When we left the classroom, we sat our animals in our seats.  And, each child had a special, squishy reading buddy today!
