My class and I get together with our kindergarten buddies once a month.

Kindergarten buddies are kindergarteners next door to our classroom. We help them read and complete activities, and we watch movies with them before the holidays.

My class and I love spending time with our buddies because it feels good to help others. They are much younger so we are always kind, happy and helpful. It is important to be a good role model and set a good example because they look up to us. 

I hope you get the chance to have younger buddies in your school — trust me, you will have a blast!
