This week my fifth graders met their second grade buddies! They spent time interviewing each other and getting to know each other.
I enjoy buddy classes. I feel they are great for character education. Buddies work on the character traits of compassion, responsibility, respect, and integrity.
Our buddy classes are going to work on building reading fluency using Scholastic’s Partner Poems for Building Fluency. In the spring, buddies will be citing a poem in a performance. We’re looking forward to an academic, fun, and rewarding experience.
Zoey had a really special relationship with her reading buddy, who went on to be her babysitter.
