Partner Reading

Partner reading is an important part of our weekly Reader's Workshop. Students have grown so much as readers and matured as Kindergarteners. Students are encouraged to sit knee to knee and shoulder to shoulder. Other parts of this reading routine are for partners to only have one book out at a time so that they are both actively participating in looking at the book and book discussions. This week students go used on discussing the characters, setting, and details in the story. They are working on retelling in sequential order and discussing their favorite part and why. Partner reading allows for different level readers to learn from each other and also requires both students to actively listen.
