Reading becomes engaging when there’s a buddy and a tangible outcome to plan. Many schools opt for reading buddies and this activity is a great multi-day activity that can be carried out with reading buddies. This can be done in class with higher level readers assisting lower level readers or with your higher age kiddos helping lower age levels, pairing up the classes. Simply print and go, mix and match the pages for easy differentiation. Reading skills can be reviewed as the children are engaged, using this easily with fiction or non fiction books.
Aligned with the IB PYP for my PYP Buddies, this can be used within any school. I have included another cover page to use with non-IB schools. Due to the nature of reading buddies, this activity can be used at any level throughout the school, with options for words and/or pictures as a means of recording answers. UK & USA spelling.
You will find 12 pages of this booklet that can be mixed and matched to suit your needs, with a final summative activity encouraging collaboration, communication and a summary of the children’s reading skills, presented in a creative, engaging and fun way.
You can find many more inquiry based resources and tools for the IB PYP in my stores and on my blog PYPteachingtools.com.
