Fall 2020 Virtual Book Buddies!
What is the Book Buddies program?
Little Buddies (kids in Grades K-3), practice their reading skills on teen volunteers, Big Buddies.
Little Buddies get to grow a love of reading, practice their skills, and connect with different teen big buddies.
This program will meet on Zoom.
We will play a group game for the first part of the meeting, then assign buddies to Breakout Reading Rooms. Buddies will have up to 40 minutes to read together in the Breakout Rooms.
Time: 4:00-5:00 PM
Dates: Thursday October 15th, 22nd, 29th, and November 5th. Check your schedule so you can attend all 4 meetings before you sign up.
