Reading Buddies!

Fourth Grader, Evan Smits reading to Kindergartener, Lucas Karger

Students at Rea View Elementary have been "buzzing" about their reading buddies!  Teachers have been pairing older students with younger students for shared reading and learning experiences. 

Reading buddy partnerships are designed to give students extra reading practice and make the reading experience fun.  The older reading buddies benefit by developing responsibility, leadership, and communication skills while serving the younger students.  Wonderful relationships develop between buddy classes throughout the course of the year.
