Reading Buddies

front page-quincie reads Front Page-reading buddies Students, in the School for the Blind, spent Friday afternoon reading books to each other as Reading Buddies.

These reading partnerships were beneficial for all involved. The older students enjoyed helping the younger students. Also, the older students improved their confidence in reading and strengthened their ability to read aloud. The younger students had one-on-one time with an older role model while improving their literacy skills. Overall, the students’ attitudes and interests in their reading and listening skills increased.
