Judy Johnson, Sandee Reutebuch, and I have enjoyed being "Reading Buddies" at Swift Elementary this summer. Tomorrow is the last day of the Arlington Public Library's "Reading Corps" program that we volunteered for so this morning I snapped a photo of the three Ambassador members who participated.
The 2nd graders are so darn cute. I read with Trinitey (yes, that is spelled correctly), Brandle (like "Randle" with a "B"), McKinsey, and Angel (his "nickname" is Angel but his name tag said "Jesus").
We know how important it is for students to read throughout the summer so their skills don't backslide over summer vacation. Very fun to be with a roomful of 7-year-olds and listen to their happy chatter and notions about how the world works.
