Helping Our Buddies with Poetry Reading and Physical Health


This past Friday we got together with our second grade buddies and combined two favorite activities… Poetry and running. First, we worked on building reading fluency by reading the poem “On the Go” from Scholastic’s Partner Poems for Building Fluency. I enjoyed listening to big and little buddies read together.


The poem is pretty short, so we used some of our time together to run a mile. My class has been running at least a mile a week to prepare for the fifth grade physical fitness test. Overall, they have been enthusiastic and eager to monitor their times in the hopes of improving. Big buddies enjoyed sharing this activity with their little buddies.
