Becky Dye’s fourth-grade class and Terry Drawyer’s kindergarten class at Bureau Valley North recently got together for a few stories and cookies. The fourth-grade students each partnered up with a kindergarten student and read a Christmas story to them while they all enjoyed cookies. The two classes have been buddies since the beginning of the year. They get together every other week and do some sort of activity together. Projects they have done in the past have been making paper chains, paper bag turkeys, teaching the kindergarteners how to play board games, and a letter scavenger hunt around the school. The students all really enjoy the partnership.
