Toe by Toe

Toe by Toe has achieved remarkable results in schools which have used the 'Buddy System'.  This system (also known as mentoring) uses older students to tutor their younger counterparts.  This tends to have a positive effect on both parties. We are convinced by the results of many Buddy Schemes that they not only improve reading skills, but have a positive effect throughout the school including: -   More responsible attitude of older pupils Better social bonds across school years Reduced bullying Reduced truancy

Toe by toe
We tried Toe by Toe for about 6 months with my daughter Poppy, it helped although she preferred the on-line programmes

Toe By Toe in prison
We have used Toe by Toe in our prison reading plan. And it has been perfect for that. The prison inmates teach each other to read with a short daily lesson together. The instructions for the mentor are right there on every page. There are some grumbles about the language used, but it has proved very effective.
