From Mrs. O'Melia's Email
 November 3. Seventh and eighth graders were reading buddies at Andrew Johnson Elementary in The Village. Students read with the primary aged children and play sight word games too. Casady students are modeling a love for learning and expressive reading to the younger students. 

Mrs. Titus took pictures of the SEE Period at Andrew Johnson Elementary. The students read books with their buddies and played games with Dolch words.

Mr. Blaze Hembre heads the SEE Period visits to Our Spot Head Start Program where 8th graders interact with the children in small groups.  MD students use Dr. Javier Carrasco's Kinesthetic Literacy Lab activities with the children.
