Reading Buddies and More
Kindergarten and Grade 3 classes meet approximately once a week. Grade 3 students help the Kindergarten students learn the alphabet through activities such as creating an alphabet book. They share literature to support learning by reading to the younger students regularly. In the photos below, the 3A students help the KA students learn to use the Accelerated Reader program to take a test on the Dr. Suess book, The Cat in the Hat.
The older students also help the younger students with activities such as making Christmas decorations and they guide them through the Stations of the Cross during Lent. The patience and kindness of the Grade 3 students for the Kindergarten students and the response of the Kindergarten students to the Grade 3 students, shows the concern and love that is shared by the students in the classes.
