    Every intermediate class in our school "buddies" with a primary class for the year. We usually meet with our buddies for 20 minutes once a week. In my case, I have a Grade 4/5 and we buddy with a K/1. Most weeks the little guys bring a "book" they have made - pattern books featuring a specific letter or sound. They read and re-read it to my guys. The older buddies ask them other rhyming words, help them track with their fingers, and then finish off by coloring one of the pages together. Some weeks we do art projects together. This week we made spiders for Hallowe'en from fresh dates, broken toothpicks and raisins. The older guys helped the younger ones count - and talked about Hallowe'en safety too. The big buddies often watch out for their buddies on the playground as well - just try it - don't wait until January!
