“We both had the same book. I just read and if I got stuck on a word she would help me. I sounded the word out twice and if I didn’t get it twice she would help me,” says Sam.
Sharon is delighted by the change in her son and in his schoolwork as a result of the program.
“I have spoken to his teacher and she said she has seen a great difference in Sammie. His reading has become more fluent, he has grown in confidence and not only that, he has also improved in the classroom,” says Sharon.
Proud of his progress, Sam says he couldn’t have achieved it without his reading buddy.
