Central & Belle Reading Buddies

Belle and Central Students reading

Throughout the school year, 5th graders in Mrs. Ralston’s class have traveled to Belle to read to Mrs. Anderson’s first grade class. Both classes look forward to this time and students have built friendships with their “reading buddies”. The 5th graders model fluent reading to the first graders, while also serving as a positive role model to their first grade buddy. The first graders enjoy reading their book aloud and then complete a comprehension activity with their buddy as well.
