These fourth and second grade reading buddies have already become friends. Having Reading Buddies allows younger readers to see what being fluent looks like as they have a peer model demonstrating reading skills. They can also acquire a positive role model. The older students develop social and emotional skills, like patience and empathy, as they work with their littler buddies. They are looking forward to many reading activities this year!

For their first math lesson, students in Mrs. Crook’s class were reviewing fraction concepts by working in groups to make a poster explaining what a fraction is, drawing examples of fractions and writing a word problem illustrating a fraction. They then shared them with the class. It was a great review of fraction concepts!
