Peer Partners at R.C. Waters

Peer Partners at R. C Waters Elementary School: On the right is Chelsea Arden, kindergartener, and at left is Abby Hutton, second grader.  

The kindergarten and second grade classrooms at R.C. Waters Elementary School in Oak Harbor are peer partners for the school year.  This partnership creates many opportunities throughout the year.  The second graders are able to be leaders and lead by example.  This allows them to gain confidence as they complete tasks together.  The kindergartners are able to use the second graders as examples for good behavior, manners, and what team work looks like. It’s a great opportunity for the students to practice skills together.  

Each kindergarten/second grade pair work with their buddy at various times throughout the school year.  Most recently the second graders worked with their kindergarten buddies to learn letters and do a Thanksgiving craft.  The students enjoy working with others at a different grade level and it’s great to see the waves they give each other as they pass by in the halls.
