    Was wondering if anyone out there has any lesson/activity ideas for reading buddies? First graders will be buddied with kinders.

    I buddied w/a 4th grade class last year. I am not sure how much of this will work w/1st & Kinder., but perhaps you can modify & use some of the ideas. Here are some of the things we did:

    *Read stories together - Older students would bring things to read to little ones, later in year little ones would read "special" writings (such as poems, stories, etc.) to big kids
    *"Getting to Know Me" activities in beginning (you can find tons of these online)
    *Read Dr. Seuss 'Oobleck' book - both classes read this separately; Made oobleck together
    *Various crafts - Dyed easter eggs, made leprechaun traps, made Christmas cards (you could also do small/cheap gifts), etc.

    I know there were more ideas but this is all I can think of right now! Hopefully this will be helpful - our kids LOVED buddy time!
