- About NPL
Reading Buddies is a literacy-based program for struggling readers in grades 1-4. It helps to foster a positive relationship with books in a supportive, no-pressure environment. (It also gives volunteer mentors an opportunity to share in the adventure!) Together, mentors and buddies meet 1-on-1 for 1 hour each week and talk, find books together, practice reading, play some literacy games, and discover new stories.
Please review some of the following guidelines for the program:
Links & resources is a place for Mentors to visit with their buddies to find online reading games to play. It's also great for mentors/parents looking for tips, tricks, and free resources to help a child in their reading.
To apply for your child to participate in the program, please download a child's Reading Buddies application form (file is in pdf format)
Please be sure to include how your child is a struggling reader, as well as any other information that willhelp us find a suitable partner.
