Buddy pairs consisting of a general education student and a student with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD), gathered to participate in group activities. Some groups made candy Valentine people to sell in the school store, while others opted to cut out hearts from red or pink construction paper and decorate them for Valentine’s Day. The buddy pairs and associate members of Best Buddies progressed to the library to create Valentine’s for the troops. Best Buddies has been involved in this worthwhile endeavor for the past three years. Interviews were conducted with buddy pairs during the taping of NJEA Classroom Close-Up.
