Numeracy Buddies

After much collaboration, coordination and planning we started our Numeracy buddy initiative today. As a way to improve critical concepts in numeracy, big buddies in grade 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 are working with little buddies in kindergarten, grade 1, 2, and 3 on practice activities developed by teachers to enhance grade level skills. Teachers worked with students in advance on what makes a good big buddy and what makes a good little buddy to help create a productive and successful partnerships. Our Numeracy buddies will meet weekly to practice their activities.
