    reading buddies

    Hello...I used this idea (that came from someone on this site actuallly) and my guys loved it.

    We decorated a reading buddie which was a rock. The students were allowed to paint the rock anyway they wanted (during this time we went over primary colors, secondary colors, intermedient colors...) and then they named their buddy. In order for him/her to "stay alive" they MUST read to him/her for at least 15 minutes each night.

    I guess i should mention that I do teach third grade, but this activity could be used for any grade level. I also saw where students decorated an empty 2 liter bottle as a reading buddy.

    Good luck and hope this helps!
