At the end of the school year at John F. Kennedy Intermediate School, third graders enjoyed a special visit from fifth graders who were about to move up to middle school. Students were paired up to celebrate all they learned during the year using teacher Frances Marotta’s math literature collection. Not only did the fifth graders read math picture books to the third graders, but the younger students read to the older students as well.

“Our students were all smiles sharing math stories together,” Marotta said. “It was a perfect way to review math concepts while making new friendships.”
