Buddy Reading

As a part of Magic Year’s annual Book Week, the Peace & Unity class visited G1-2 in their classroom for buddy reading.  Peace & Unity students were then paired up with a G1-2 student, who choose a book to read together.

Together the Peace & Unity students and their buddy found a quiet place in the classroom to read.  The G1-2 students shared their love of reading, and the Peace & Unity students were extremely engaged in the story being read to them.  After the book was finished, the pair either elected to read another story or two together, have a conversation, or to play.

The partnerships were exciting and many of the Peace & Unity students now enjoy saying hello to their G1-2 partner when they see them around school.
