Academy Street Elementary School third-grade students in Nicole Greco’s class have been forging friendships as they serve as role models for their second-grade book buddies in Rebecca Tilden’s class. The students meet regularly throughout the year to complete literacy-based projects. This October, the buddies met to enjoy the book “Tell Me a Scary Story, But Not Too Scary” by Carl Reiner and complete a short writing activity for Halloween. After listening to the comical tale, the pairs discussed their favorite parts of the book, what they thought about the ending and if they would recommend it to a friend.

The book buddies program is a longstanding tradition between the two classes.
