This week, we began partner reading and our reader's share during Reader's Workshop. For our first partner reading experience, we talked about the books in our book bins with our partners and how they want to read.
We talked about what reading partners look and sound like. Partners should be sitting "knee to knee" or side by side so they can look on at the words in their partner's books. Partners should be listening and following along with their partners as they read so they can understand the story and help their partners with any trick spots! And partners should be talking about the stories they read and the connections they have to them. The giraffes did a great job with their first partner reading experience, we are excited to work with partners more next week and throughout the school year!
