Mrs. Teresa D’addato’s 4th grade class and Mrs. Faviola Davis’s 1st grade class celebrated “Read Across America” and “Dr. Seuss by having their Buddy Classes work together on some special projects. One of those projects was reading a “Cat in the Hat” recipe. The 4th graders acted as little teachers and had to read the recipe to their 1st grade buddy. By following the direction they created an edible “Cat in the Hat” which they shared and enjoyed during recess time. Along with this project the Buddies worked on informational reading texts, included a biography of Dr. Seuss then creating a time line about his life. Both classes meet on a regular basis to work on Math and Science projects, but when a special occasion arise they jump into action and get together for fun learning and collaboration.
