Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies

Together with the 4A(TY) English class and a selection of 5th year students, we established a Reading Buddies group that went out to visit the junior classes of Merlin Woods and read stories to them.

The aim of this program is that;

· By pairing older and younger students together to read aloud to each other, both students' reading and listening skills will benefit

· It will allow our students the opportunity to develop fluency as well as a sense of pride in their accomplishments

· It will also promote good practices and gain self-esteem

· It will provide students with a reason to read also

This was an idea that a small group of the TY's came up with when discussing lessons for Dec and they really loved the classes.
