Read to Someone
"Reading with someone helps readers, especially developing readers, become more self-sufficient and less reliant on the teacher for assistance. Research shows that taking turns while reading increases reading involvement, attention, and collaboration." (The Daily 5 p. 60)
Children LOVE to Read to Someone, and why not, they have a friend with them who will listen to them and discuss their reading. Of all The Daily 5, teachers may be more apprehensive of this Daily than any of the others, not because they don't see the value in it, but because...it can be noisy. Not to worry, we have ideas here that will contribute to engaged readers and enable you to enjoy this time as well.
