 "Transforming Possibilities into Realities”

Is it ever too early to start reading?  Students at Featherbed Lane Elementary would say no.  An ongoing reading program continues where 1st grade students routinely "buddy read" with pre-k students. The first graders select a book to read to their Pre-K buddies and then the pre-k students read their Open Court pre-decodable books to the first grade "buddies." 

Students are able to practice their oral reading fluency skills while developing  a relationship  with other students. The goal is that the relationships will foster positive interactions, instill a sense of giving back and working to help others while focusing on acquiring an understanding of the importance of developing a love of reading. The pre-k students see the interactions as fun and look forward to showing off their reading skills.  The first graders take their role seriously and enjoy being positive role models.  Teachers feel that the program benefits everyone.
