Buddy Systems at Delavan!

A buddy system enables younger children to feel safe and cared for while older children feel valued and respected. These systems can help students feel supported, teach important social skills, and create a caring environment in the school. Buddy systems help foster school relationships, bring on new friendships, and reinforce the importance of family and community. In order to create this type of respect and rapport, we chose to collaborate between kindergarten and first grade. In doing this, our goal was to develop responsibility, build self-confidence, develop empathy, promote inclusion, and discourage bullying. Although our buddy system was created in the school setting, these programs can be used throughout multiple environments (i.e. transition a new employee, mentoring those in need, Big Brother-Big Sister, etc.). Recently, our buddy system participated in a Nature Walk. Take a look!!
