The Buddy Reading Program

  • Teachers collaborate for the benefit of our students to improve as readers and to provide an opportunity for leadership.  Younger students are matched up with older students and they get together on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to focus on reading.  Younger students get the chance to read out loud or have someone read to them, helping them become better readers. Our older students get the opportunity to be positive role models in reading, making excellent choices, and helping a fellow Lakes’ student enhance their reading fluency and comprehension.
