Reading Buddies

ReadingBuddies3Students in Mrs. Connors’ Kindergarten class had a surprise when they visited the school library on Friday afternoon: their third grade reading buddies from Mrs. Kathy Johnston’s class!

Students in Mrs. Johnston’s class visited the library earlier in the week to select a book to read to their kindergarten buddy. The students were encouraged to select one rich in images that would engage their Kindergarten friend. Throughout the week, the third grade students took the book home to practice for Friday’s meet and greet.

Throughout the year, the classes will meet to read books and complete literacy activities. As the Kindergarten students learn to read and grow into independent readers, they’ll have the chance to read with and to their third grade buddies.
