        Intent- There’s no better feeling than seeing children losing themselves in the world of fictional character. Buddy reading program improves word recognition, builds vocabulary, and improves fluency and comprehension by reading to children in younger grades i.e. Kindergarten and Pre KG.

The kids assumed the role of a teacher. They had fun learning and communicating with a different age group. Our young readers also read the story to our non-teaching staff who also added that such reading program energizes and enlivens them. It eases their burdens. It renews their sense of optimism and opens us up to new possibilities.

The reader and the listeners were completely involved in the stories they read. They imagined the characters and the adventures they have. They thought about what is happening and they shared the emotional journey of the book’s characters too.
