Buddy Reading

Buddy Reading

The month of March has brought another fabulous opportunity for our students as Omak School District has begun a Reading Buddy Program.  Reading Buddies is a partnership between Omak High School’s Book Club and East Omak Elementary School where high school students are matched with students in grades 3rd-5th.   Buddy pairs read together, play reading-based games, and participate in group activities to help foster a love of reading. The purpose of Reading Buddies is to provide leadership, responsibility, and community service opportunities, with high school mentors helping to foster a love of reading in elementary school students. As with any skill, reading needs to be practiced on a regular basis, and with this practice as well as modeling, students can improve their skills. In addition, they often come to see the value of reading. Students can not only promote good practices but gain higher self-esteem.  East Omak Elementary Students are excited to start reading with their high school buddies.
