Read With a Partner

During Read With a Partner, students can read with a partner by sharing their book or taking turns reading their own books. Students pick a partner and then find a quiet spot in the room to sit EEKK (elbow, elbow, knee, knee), and they take turns reading to each other. Students were given a wooden checkmark with “who, what, where” written on it to keep in their book baskets. They were taught to stop their partner every few pages to check for understanding. Eventually they will be able to use question rings and beachball bookmarks to check for comprehension.

  1. Hi!! I am beginning the Daily 5 in my 2nd grade class this year. I am interested in finding out how you made/found the question ring picture cards and the beach ball bookmarks. I’ve been trying to make my own for the past two hours and it is taking a lot of work. It looks like you used a template. Please help when you have time. Thank you. -Carly

  2. Hi Carly,
    I just added a page on my blog that says, Daily 5 Files, and it has a link to the question cards. Hope this helps, good luck:-)
