Paumanok Book Buddies Celebrate Chill Of Winter Weather
Chip Parker

Mrs. Marder's 4th graders and Ms. Belz’s 2nd graders from Paumanok got together as Book Buddies to celebrate the chill of winter weather. They shared a read-aloud of "The Missing Mitten Mystery" by Steven Kellogg and were then challenged to create a matching pair of mittens with their buddy. The partners used teamwork, negotiation, art, creativity and some mental gymnastics in creating a mirror image on each mitten.
