John J. Doran Community School

how do you make a gif

Mrs. Assad, Doran’s Instructional Technology teacher, has started a Book Buddy program with Mrs. Andrade’s Kindergarten students and Ms. ViIllatoro’s eighth grade students. The middle school students were matched up with one or two Kindergarten students who they will partner with on a long term basis to build positive relationships. The program is designed to help children develop an interest in reading and build critical reading skills. The eighth graders who are their mentors teach the younger students how to relate well to all kinds of people and help them strengthen communication skills. During the bi-weekly sessions, Kindergarten students choose books to read with their “Buddies.” Students also work on site words and making predictions in each book.
