Why? Why? Why?!!

We've been talking and thinking a lot about "why". Why are we learning fractions in math? Why are we learning about comparing and contrasting in reading? Why do we need to learn the writing process? Why are we learning about India, China, Australia, Spain and the US? I am usually the one telling why...

My question today is this: Why do we have reading buddies? What is the purpose of inviting the first graders to our room to read them our writing or to help them with their writing, or to introduce them to our blog or Twitter?

Tell me what you think.
