Book Buddies at Woodland Elementary School

Book Buddies at Woodland Elementary School
Posted on 11/15/2021

First and fourth graders at Woodland Elementary School are getting to know each other through a book buddy program. Every week, Mrs. Kronenberger’s fourth grade class partners with Mrs. Waldron’s first grade class to engage in English Language Arts activities including reading, sharing books and giving book reviews.

The book buddy program started as a way for students to interact with each other, since there were not many opportunities to do so last school year due to COVID-19. Fourth graders are taking on leadership roles by helping their younger peers learn to read. Likewise, first graders are enjoying having an older role model in the building. All students involved are gaining confidence in their reading abilities while interacting and forming bonds with one another.
