VBHS Students Mentor Beachland First Grade Readers
Posted on 05/16/2019
Beachland and VBHS studentsUnder the direction of Carrie Adams, VBHS Language Arts teacher, and Jennifer Gabbard, Beachland Elementary Reading Coach, thirteen Beachland first graders had the opportunity to practice and improve their reading skills with a VBHS student. The student mentors started visiting the students at the end of September, every Tuesday afternoon for thirty minutes. These dedicated high school mentors helped the first graders with their overall reading skills; practicing their high-frequency words, oral reading, and reading comprehension. The first graders and their mentors celebrated in April, during their last session, with games, cupcakes, and goodie bags. Thank you to these students for serving as positive role-models!
