What's more fun than sitting with a friend and reading a book? Read to Someone helps students grow as readers in a collaborative fashion. The children really enjoy this component of the Daily 5 in that they get excited about sharing a book with a friend. There have been many times that I have heard my students mimic my voice in a book that they are reading to a classmate! It makes me chuckle and gives me a warm feeling inside! In addition to the fun that the children have during this time, Read to Someone increases the following:

  • The volume of reading
  • The level of attention to reading
  • Reading motivation
  • Fluency
  • Reading rate
  • Word-attack skills
  • The love of reading
(Reference: the Daily 5 by Gail Boushey & Joan Moser)

Sitting EEKK

Sitting Elbow to Elbow, Knee to Knee is what we do during Read to Someone. The children sit next to each other, almost touching elbows and knees. Doing so allows students to speak quietly and still be heard by their reading partner. It also makes it easy to share the book and help out if needed.
