OUR BUDDY CLASS
We have a buddy class, do you know who they are?
Our buddy class is room 9A Leva, they are down by the main entrance next to the hall. We were lucky because Mrs Shackleton chose us to be their buddy class.
When we first met them Mrs Shackleton introduced us to everyone in the class. She showed us the movement studio where all the teachers help the children move and flex their muscles so they can walk and move on their own. We even got to play with them in the movement studio, we got to sit in the hammock and go down the slide and look into the sensory room.
We made a tree, I got to paint the trunk of the tree and our hands were the leaves of the tree.

READING STORIES TO OUR BUDDIES
We choose picture books that we wanted to read to our buddies in Leva when we had our weekly library session. We were all really excited to read our stories to our buddies and we picked books that we thought they would like to listen to us read, that also had great pictures to entertain our buddies. Whaea Dee also picked up Leva's books from the library. We had an ample supply of books and we were ready to go. When we arrived in 9A Mrs Shackleton welcomed us in and told us to sit on the mat with our buddies. She explained to the students in 9A that today we would be reading stories. We were allow to read our stories in the Movement studio as well as the classroom.
We enjoyed reading our stories to our buddy class and it was fun being able to move between the movement studio and their classroom.
We are so glad Mrs Shackleton chose room 21 to be their buddy class as we have so much fun working with our buddies every second Wednesday.
