Engage students in reading by having them share books with peers. Students prepare for giving a book talk in which they'll describe what happens in the book, their favorite part, and whether or not they would recommend the book to a friend.
Help students prepare for reader’s workshop and practice reading comprehension by sharing about books they’ve read. After taking turns telling a partner all about their chosen books, students will write or draw about what their partner shared.
As students begin to read independently, they may have questions about what they read. These questions should be encouraged! Have students record their questions about their reading or any unknown words on this graphic organizer.
