Mrs. Ferreria's third graders each chose a book they thought their kindergarten reading buddy would enjoy. They practiced reading the book fluently as a partner records the words that they have difficulty with. When they have practiced and are performance ready, they will use Seasaw to record themselves into their digital portfolio and then share that recording with their reading buddies. The kindergarten friends then have a library of books that can be read to them. What a great partnership and amazing online tool!

Reading Buddy Time-LaPerche Fourth graders introduced the first graders to Prodigy, an engaging online math platform that allows students to work at their own pace. One goal of reading buddies is to provide opportunities for students to be leaders. The fourth graders took on the role of teacher as Prodigy was launched in first grade.

Miss Zucker teachers her first graders about Hanukkah and they teach their fourth grade reading buddies how to play the dreidel game. Reading buddies is a time for student to engage with an older or younger friend and play the role of teacher or learner. In this case, our first graders were the teachers!
