 CLARK, NJ - As the Thanksgiving holiday approached, students at Valley Road School in Mrs. Petela’s second grade and Ms. Kane’s fourth grade classes worked together to create main idea turkeys.

The Reading Wonders program spirals lessons through grade levels, so both the second and fourth grade classes were working on finding the main idea. Both teachers read the story the Ugly Pumpkin written by Dave Horowitz. After the story, the second and fourth graders worked with their buddies to find the main idea and key details of the story

“It was a wonderful experience to watch the students work together and see their excitement as they shared their knowledge with the second-grade students,” commented Ms. Kane.
