Book Buddies are Back!!
We are so excited to bring back Book Buddies! Last year, we wanted to get second graders reading more and Pre-K students exposed to more types of readers! Book buddies were born!! Natalie Stansbury, UPK teacher at Bolivar Road Elementary, and Courtney Aversano, Second Grade Teacher at Bolivar Road Elementary, set up a time in their schedule for their classes to get together once a week. We spent most of the time reading books together, but we did many other activities too! We were able to enjoy a musical concert pre-k students put on with their instruments, we participated in Challenge Island together, and we even did an end-of-the-year celebration together! Book buddies are great for getting kids to read, but they all get much more out of it. Our young students had older students to look up to, and our older students strove to be the best role models! We are excited to bring back this excellent activity!
