This ebook contains a buddy program for elementary aged students. Themes utilized in Book 2 include: 'Under The Sea', 'Food', 'Fairytales and Nursery Rhymes', and 'Christmas'.
This program is quite structured in nature. Two classes are involved in the program - an older and younger class (e.g. Grade 5 with a Grade 1 class). Each child is given a partner or a buddy by the class teachers. These pairings are decided upon by both teachers after considering the special needs and capabilities of each child. The same partners are kept for the whole year so that a strong bond develops between the two students.
These activities enable children to learn from each other in a caring and friendly environment; develop academic, social and personal skills; display an awareness and a need to care for others; develop the skills of responsibility, understanding and tolerance; assist the younger students with their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills; display a greater awareness of the world around them; and develop an awareness of the concept and value of friendship.
