Room 213ELA is now participating in an amazing program called Bridges: Growing Older, Growing Together. We have 8 volunteers from the community who are coming into our classroom once a week and doing activities with us. Last week was a meet and greet when we got to get to know each other and create a group name. This week our students took their volunteers for a tour of Pine Glen. We also compared our school experiences today with their experiences in the past. We learned so many things, like how the number of students in classes were much larger (40 students!) than today and how they sat in rows. One volunteer even explained that there was a boys entrance and a girls entrance into the school! The program has been a huge hit thus far and we are so excited to have new friends in 213.
