Fullerton IV Elementary School held its first Buddy Room Read-A-Thon, where older students were paired with younger students to read together.

Learning specialist Kristin Coopride said, “As part of the Conscious Discipline philosophy, this helps us build connections within our school while also promoting reading for enjoyment.”

Fourth Grade Teacher Sandra Bannister added, “The Buddy Rooms are helping build connections between younger and older kids as well as building relationships between primary and intermediate teachers.”

This was one of several Buddy Room activities that Fullerton IV has done so far this year.

The students certainly seemed to enjoy themselves.

Skylar Knox is a sixth grade student at Fremont Middle School in Roseburg.
