Today we met with our learning buddies for the first time. I'm not too sure who was more excited, my Grade 5/6 kids or the PreK kids we're paired up with. We get together once every 6 day cycle. It allows the PreK teachers to plan activities that require more assistance than they can give all by themselves. It also gives the little guys role models they can look up to. But the little guys aren't the only ones who benefit. My kids get the satisfaction of helping and taking care of younger kids. They love the responsibility and it's a good feeling for them to have someone look up to them.
