Building confidence with reading buddies

Third graders in Ivette Crichton’s class visited their kindergarten reading buddies in Lindsay Pietroski’s class to practice their reading and active listening skills. “Sharing the love of reading is such a win-win. Our third grade reading buddies share more than just a story as they ‘buddy-up’ with their kindergartener. The older students learn the importance of mentorship and each partnership learns the value of being an active listener. With every visit, these students share a special bond that they will cherish into their high school years,” Crichton said.
