Scrabble with Seniors Helps Henry Second Graders

From learning how to play Scrabble to learning how to spell, add up their scores and be a good sport, Patrick Henry Elementary School’s Scrabble with Seniors program is a Triple Word Score for all involved. For the past six years, Henry second grade students have traveled to the Senior Center at Walter Reed for scrabble, creating a unique sense of community and providing learning opportunities that go well beyond the game board. Check out this week’s Partners in Action to learn more about this unique partnership.
