This activity encourages students and families to read together. It allows families to support their child's independent reading practice in a supportive way that a classmate usually would. You can also encourage your students to partner read remotely on the phone or with technology. You can select books for students to use for this activity or encourage free choice, depending on the skill and availability of books in your student's homes.
