So....I'm rereading Growing Readers as my first summer professional read (Conferring is on order...), and I got to the part about partners in Chapter Two. That was a sketchy too often left out part of my RW last year. Tell me if and how you involve partner time in your RW. I especially like the idea of partners sitting next to each other on the rug for minis, and getting to practice turning and talking that way. I look forward to your input!
