You can use this video for the final session of MARTHA SPEAKS Reading Buddies program. Students watch the video, in which Martha wants to find a truly thoughtful gift for Grandma Lucille’s birthday. After watching, buddy pairs talk about the episode, make a thank you card, read a children’s book together, and write in their journal. In addition, you can celebrate the end of the program by distributing the Certificates of Achievements for both Little Buddies and Big Buddies. Prior to using this resource for Reading Buddies, be sure you have read the complete introductory materials in the MARTHA SPEAKS Reading Buddies Program Guide.
