Martha Speaks Reading Buddies

Martha SpeaksMARTHA SPEAKS Reading Buddies program is an innovative way to help elementary students increase their vocabulary, develop self-esteem and social skills, and enhance their love of books and reading. The reading buddies program pairs kindergarten or 1st grade students with 4th or 5th graders to meet one-on-one for ten 45 minute sessions. Each session introduces four vocabulary words through a selected Martha Speaks episode, and then reinforced as the buddy pairs share books, talk, and do fun activities together. The five steps of each session includes a 15 minute video, talk and play time, read aloud picture book, journal writing, and wrap up.
