Sight Word Buddies
The Reading Team is excited to share our Winter Sight Word Mentors! Teachers in grades 2-5 were asked to recommend 2 students from their homeroom who arrive on time every morning, are responsible, kind, helpful, and patient to work with a 1st or 2nd grade buddy to practice sight words every Monday-Thursday morning. The Sight Word Mentors went through training on Monday and Tuesday and started working with their buddies on Wednesday. The buddies (and their teachers) are over the moon with excitement about working with their Sight Word Mentors. Thank you to all of our Sight Word Mentors! We appreciate the positive impact you are making in our FRES learning community!
