Daily 5 - Read to Someone

Thursday, September 5, 2013

Today we started the second component of the Daily 5 - Read to Someone. We learned that by reading to someone else helps us understand words we may not have known and also helps us become more fluent readers. Students were matched up with a partner and were allowed to choose a big book to read. We learned how to sit - EEKK! (elbow elbow, knee to knee) and we learned how to use our whisper voices, and finally we learned how to check for understanding after our partner read. Day 1 was a success - we built up to 5 minutes of reading stamina!
