LAKE WALES – Bok Academy students in teacher Andrea Baker’s seventh grade boys’ reading class visited Polk Avenue Elementary third graders recently for a morning of reading-related activities, including board games, read-alouds, iPad activities, and Accelerated Reader tests.
Bok student David Ethridge shares a story with third grader Juan Alvarez, in the program that Baker entitled PAIR: Partner And Increase Reading. “This is a wonderful opportunity for older students to mentor to younger ones,” said Baker. Next, she has invited high school students to visit her class at Bok Academy.
