In conjunction with a reading unit on immigration and coming to America, Mrs. Campbell’s fourth grade class spent some time interviewing some of The King’s Academy‘s English as a Second Language students from Mr. Moulden’s class. The fourth graders wrote interview questions in preparation for the visit. Then Mrs. Campbell put her students in small groups to interview the international guests.
“I liked it!” said Emma Lakatosh, fourth grade student in Mrs. Campbell’s class. “I got to meet people from other countries, and I liked having a new friend who is a lot older than me!”
Faith Rollar commented, “I liked my new friend because he was funny and nice. It was great to meet someone new to understand each other.”
“The new friends were funny! I liked hearing their different accents,” stated Kolbie Greene.
Mrs. Campbell added, “This has been a great opportunity to not only foster community, one of our school’s core values, but also to practice writing, listening, and speaking at both levels of learning. All of the students had a wonderful time sharing with each other.”
