Do You Have A Struggling Reader?
Are you a reader who likes helping others?
This popular program pairs a senior buddy (5th grade +) with a junior buddy (grades 1-3).
Paired buddies meet at least once a week at the library at a mutually convenient time.
The junior buddy practices reading skills by reading to the senior buddy. The senior buddy provides gentle guidance, encouragement, and other activities to make reading fun.
