From Third Grade teacher Christina M. Cracium: Each month, the Everest Academy third grade girls participate in reading sessions with their “book buddies”, the preschoolers. In a typical reading session, each third grader works one-on-one with a preschooler to read aloud some of the preschoolers’ favorite narratives. The 3G class also enacts plays on occasion for their buddies, and the preschoolers never cease to find entertainment from the creative costumes and scripts that the girls create! The third graders love being role models to their younger peers, and they look forward to this special time with their book buddies every month.
