Buddy Reading is a fun activity for our students! But do you ever wish you could make the buddies' experience more rigorous and academic? Do your buddies sometimes get off track, or make the experience more of a social time? This product will keep them in line and provide them with more of a structure to their time together, which will improve the overall experience they have with each other!
Included in this pack are a set of both fiction and non-fiction printables, full of reading comprehension questions that the buddies can ask each other. There is room for them to write on the printables if you'd like to keep them more accountable, or they can also just talk about the questions and their answers. The questions include the following topics:
~asking questions of the text
and more! These printables are perfect for Daily 5, Buddy Reading, or even Reading to Self! The questions are suitable for both partners, no matter what their grade level. Both Firsties and Fifth Graders will benefit from answering the questions about their shared texts.
I've also included a summary sheet in which the students "rate" their books with a thumbs up or thumbs down, and share why they made that choice. Finally, you'll receive a printable that is to be used as Thank You cards for buddies to send to each other. Just cut the cards in half and fold...Your students can write a nice note inside and color the cover. What a nice way to conclude the buddies time together!
