The Buddy Reading Planning Sheet will guide readers through their discussions as they read a chapter book together. The buddies meet five times. The first time is a "Meet the Book" conference. Then there are 4 more scheduled meetings. The guide outlines the pages to be read and topics to be discussed. Discussioin topics include predictions, thick questions, and summarizing.
Included in this packet are;
- Planning Sheets
- a set of Thick Question starter cards
- question recording sheet
- meeting reminder bookmarks
- Stragegy Note Organizer so students can keep track of their thinking notes as they read.
- Folder directions, including two cover choices.
I have used this reading guide with both partner and small group reading. The more times the students go through the discussion guide the more profecient they become with their discussions.
