This week we have been modeling and practicing what effective partner reading looks like. We talked about sitting knee to knee and positioning the book where both readers can see the text. We worked on helping each other sound out tricky words WITHOUT giving the reader the answer. We also discussed how reading partners can recommend books for each other.
The first grade and kindergarten students of the Otter class invite you to explore our site and enjoy this reflection of our school life.
