Sharing the Love of Reading

Each year, the Grade 4 students have a chance to be a Reading Buddy to a Grade 1 student. The older kids help the younger ones to read books at Grade 1 level, take AR tests, and practice strategies for choosing books and figuring out words. This experience is beneficial for everyone, and is also a great way to build our school community. Many Grade 4 students remember when they were the “little buddy” in Grade 1, and work hard to be a positive leader. What a great way to share the love of reading!

This year we are paired up with 1VQ. If your child is not a buddy now, he or she will get a chance in the new year.
