To practice their reading fluency skills, a group of Link’s 7th and 8th-grade scholars had an opportunity to bring their reading skills and strategies from the upper house at Link to young readers in the lower grades. 7th graders who recently completed their study of The Lightning Thief, shared interesting Greek mythologies with the younger students. 8th graders, studying The Omnivore's Dilemma, engaged students in conversations about where food comes from and how we can make healthy food choices. As new readers, Kindergarten and first-grade scholars benefit from discussing what makes a text fiction vs. nonfiction (informational). 7th and 8th-grade scholars enjoyed the practice and are already asking about when they can return to meet with their younger reading buddies!
