Daily 5


Read to Someone

Of all the choices children participate in, Read to Someone is often their favorite.  Reading with someone helps readers, especially developing readers, increase areas of comprehension, accuracy, fluency, and prosody.  It also increases reading involvement, attention, and collaboration. What's more, children love partner reading and readily participate with books they choose. 

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 5 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.
