Cross Grade Reading Buddies


Fifth grade students from room 308 are participating with their reading buddies.  In doing so they are also honing in on their own reading skills.  Students also learn to be a mentor to younger kids and monitor the reading of their 2nd grade buddies.


The skills are these:

-stopping at periods or commas

– changing the voice when asking a question or using an exclamation point

– sounding out a word syllable  by syllable (covering up) to read a long word

– using context clues to infer meaning of new vocabulary

– asking and answering questions

– Reading books both in English and Spanish

– Acknowledging students’ efforts and triumphs at the end of the reading buddy session
