During Daily Five, my students are able to choose a reading buddy from our classroom basket to read to during Reading to Self. My first graders have loved the buddies all year long, so for Christmas I decided to give them all a new buddy to take home. I created this little poem to go on the gift tags: I am your little reading buddy, quiet as can be. I will listen to you, as you read to me. Read to me anywhere, anytime you can. You will soon find, I am your biggest fan! Happy Reading! I found some great felt gift bags from Target to put them in and the gift and gift wrap are complete! Happy Holidays!
