Reading Buddies

This entry was posted in Oakville Elementary News, Rotherglen News.

Over the past few weeks, the Grade 8 Leaders have fostered meaningful bonds with the Grade 1 students through their Reading Buddies initiative. Once a week, Grade 8 students spend time reading books with a friend in Grade 1. Through nurturing conversations, the Grade 8 Leaders motivate their buddies to discuss what is happening in the books being shared, to offer personal anecdotes related to the stories, and most importantly, the Grade 1 students are encouraged to read out loud. The experience has been rewarding for all those involved. The students are excited to see one another each week, and a strong sense of community is noted throughout all interactions. The Grade 8 Leaders are to be commended for their kindness, patience, and genuine interest and engagement in supporting younger students.
