Reading Buddies

At Pioneer Elementary, Reading Buddies are a special tradition. "Kindergarten students are paired up with 3rd grade students," explained Parent Involvement Coordinator Kristina Saldivar. "This gives our third grade students a sense of responsibility and our Kindergarten students a sense of security."  During their reading time together this year, the third grade students read out loud to their kindergarten buddies.  "The kindergartners really enjoyed listening to the great stories," added Salidvar.  For tips on reading activities for kids visit: A year of reading with NEA.
