Reading Buddies Programs
Do You Have A Struggling Reader?
Are you a reader who likes helping others?
Reading Buddies: 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.
Reading Buddies orientation will take place on July 14th @ 3pm.
~ Applications for Reading Buddies Programs available at Grinnell Library ~
