McElwain buddy classrooms let students collaborate

McElwain buddy classrooms let students collaborate

Each year at McElwain Elementary, we have buddy classrooms where fifth graders are paired with kindergartners. The fifth graders assist with academics, and many times the classes participate in joint social activities. It is a great program that benefits all students involved.

The photo at the top of the story shows students from Ms. Armstrong's 5th grade class working with students from Ms. Kalra's kindergarten class.

Special thanks to the McElwain Elementary community for submitting this Five Star Story.

This story exemplifies our ELEVATE Focus Area: 21st Century Learners. Sharing stories of students who collaborate, think critically, problem-solve and are digitally literate to thrive in today’s ever-changing world.
