This is a Reading Buddy. The children color it and name it the first part of the year. Their job is to re-read books from their small group buckets. They are color coded. If a child is a Green Zebra, then they will choose texts from the green bucket. If they are in the Yellow Cheetah group, they will choose books from the yellow bucket. These books are texts they have read with me at the small group table. They have also been taken home (usually on Thursdays) to read to their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, dogs, cats,and fish. :) When they are finished with reading stations/centers, they are to go read to their Reading Buddy.
