12 years ago, my aunt, Mrs. Deeney, and I started doing "Book Buddies" with our classes. Mrs. Deeney, who taught, in Plainville for 36 years (mostly in 1st grade!), and I saw our students learn to love reading, while also fostering beautiful friendships! I have been running Book Buddies ever since!
This year, our class will be reading with Mrs. Baker's 2nd graders! Each Day 4 we will get together, either at Jackson or here at Wood, and will share our love of reading. Younger readers work on their fluency and their developing reading skills, while our 4th graders master their craft and continue to work on strengthening their reading skills. We will also be enjoying fun activities together throughout the year!
