Read to Someone time!

Students are now so good at "Read to Self" time, I knew they were ready to try "Read to Someone" time. This is another important component of our Reading Workshop, and one that students will do nearly every day. Reading with another person helps students develop better reading comprehension (through book discussions) and fluency (as students tend to read with more inflection and expressiveness when reading with other people). Also, this is a very motivating part of reading, as many people enjoy sharing books with each other! Our first Read to Someone time last week went very well! A few students were out of the room when I took these pictures, but they won't escape my camera for long! ;-)
