    Buddy Ideas
    By Emily

    I'm not sure what you're looking for, or if you're looking for weekly projects or monthly ones, but here is what my 5th graders have done with our K buddies.
    * make friendship bracelets using embroidery thread (the big kids helped the little ones braid the thread and tie it).
    * buddy reading
    * "trading places" for an afternoon. The little ones came to our room for an hour to do what the big kids do, and then we went to their room to do what kinders do for an hour. My kids loved it.
    * make a friendship quilt (no sew of course- we used the adhesive "tape" that requires ironing)
    * eat lunch together outside (we had to do sack lunch b/c of the cafeteria schedule).
    * have "secret buddy pals" and send cards or colored pictures back and forth, and at the end of the year reveal who had who as a secret pal (although we did see each other weekly, we didn't reveal who had who until the end).
