Forming Reading Buddies with
Our Senior Kindergarten Students
Our Grade One students are provided with multiple opportunities to practise their reading skills in order to develop the required reading fluency. To compliment reading to self, reading to a peer or to a teacher, they continue to practise their role as reading buddies to our SK students.
Our students look forward to hosting their reading buddies. Their main goal is to exhibit an increasing love of reading, as well as a pride in their constantly developing reading skills.
As our Grade One students read and listen to their younger readers, they model good reading and listening practices. In addition, their self-esteem increases, as they continue to feel more positive about their ability to read and guide their reading buddies.
Our buddy visits will be ongoing with the hope that our older and younger students form deeper connections with one another and continue to nurture a mutual interest in reading.
