Fifth graders help younger classmates with writing and typing

March 23, 2012

Fifth graders in Lynn Selkirk's class have made buddies with Mary Reed's kindergarten students. Every Thursday, the older students help the 5- and 6-year old classmates learn how to write.

They have learned something new about each other and put pencil to paper to create a story. The final step was typing on the computer-- a new skill for the younger ones. It was a great learning experience for the whole group.
