Reading Buddies Across Grade LevelsMs. Nodes and Mrs. Testa class have been buddies since September. Students were paired with a buddy through the AWR character education program. These buddies have built strong bonds and their friendship has made a true impact on each other. Besides learning about character education themes, such as kindness and respect, these buddy pairs also meet to discuss their writing. Recently, Ms. Nodes and Mrs. Testa"s class got together to celebrate a published piece of writing each student completed. Students loved hearing each other"s stories. Students also discussed the writing goals they had as they wrote their piece. Students were excited to see that every write has a goal and motivation for writing.
