I made these little cards to help keep my "buddies" engaged in meaningful conversations while partner reading. I copied mine front to back on colored cardstock, laminated, chopped, hole-punched in the corner, and made little rings of questions that buddies can easily grab.
I teach my kids a pattern for buddy reading -
Partner A reads a page while B listens and follows along.
Partner B asks A a question from the ring.
Partner B reads a page while A listens.
Partner A asks B a question from the ring.
It seems to help both partners stay on task even if the other one is reading.
