Working together to read
For the second year in a row, Waverly Park Elementary School fourth- and fifth-graders recently shared their love of reading with kindergartners during their visit to the Lynbrook Kindergarten Center. 

Teachers created groups between the elementary and kindergarten students and each found a comfortable spot in the classroom where they began reading together. This unique opportunity allowed the elementary students to serve as role models as they helped the kindergartners read different books. In addition, they each gave their kindergarten partner a bookmark to encourage them to keep reading.
