Just Me and My Buddy

Tomorrow is the first day of school and I am sooooooo excited to have all my new students in my classroom.  Today they dropped off their supplies: New crayons, markers, glue, tape, paper, all those wonderful things teachers love. 

Now tomorrow the fun begins.  On Wednesday my students will meet their 8th grade buddies for the first time.  To help the 8th graders and the kindergarteners interact with each other I created a book for them to work on together. 

My hope is that the 8th graders will read and talk to their little buddies about the pages.  Then, together, fill in the blanks.  There are spots for both of them to draw pictures. 

When the books are complete, the kindergarteners can take the books home and share with their parents about their new BIG BUDDY.

If you would like a copy of the book, CLICK HERE.  Please leave me some feedback so I know what you think.
