100 Ways to Help!
David is a first year Learning Buddy and helps kindergarteners at a Mendota Heights elementary school develop their reading and math skills. When he was volunteering one afternoon, it happened to be the 100th day of school, which is a very special day for the students. Many wore handmade hats that had 10 long strips glued around it with 10 stickers on each strip to total 100 stickers!
He first worked with students one-on-one with their math work, which focused on counting by 10's and gluing the correct number on a 100's chart. Then, he had students read a story to him and answer questions he asked as they read. The students enjoyed celebrating the 100th day of school with David!
Thanks for all you do to help the Kindergarteners, David, we appreciate you!
