Laylee Woodward: June 2019
Wow! What a big step you have taken to take up the responsibility to become a buddy! Read this leaflet carefully and you will become a brilliant buddy in not time!
Getting to know your buddy
As your buddy has never met you before you need to get to know them! tell them your name and age and then ask for theirs (they will usually be about 4-5 years old).
Reading with your buddy
Get you buddy's book and help them to try and read the title; if they can not do this, ask them about the things on the front cover. Then ask again if they can read the title, this time pointing at the thing the word is saying. This works for all pages in their book. After you have read with them, ask them for their reading diary. neatly write the date, title of the book and the name of the author. Also write the things they struggled with / how easy it was for them to read.
What do do if your buddy isn't listening
If your buddy decides that she/he does not want to listen, you ask them the same thing again but in a stern voice. If this dos not work, get them to look at you and ask them again. If your buddy still decides not to listen, then this is the time to get a teacher.
See, only three steps to success! But before you go...
Have fun with your buddy!
Having a buddy may be a big responsibility, but remember to have fun! Enjoy play times and lunch times with your buddy, showing them around the playground and where the play equipment is. Enjoy the time with your buddy and everything that life has to offer. (You only have one year with your buddy!)
Thank you Laylee for your wonderful advice!
