Reading Buddies

Every day after morning recess, my class has "book time."  During book time, my aides take the students to the restroom in groups.  It can take 20 minutes to get all of the toileting done, so to keep structure in the classroom I have silent reading.  My book monitor passes out books and magazines to the students and they are to look at the pictures and read the book.  To keep student's engaged with their book, I provide them with a "reading buddy."  Student's get to choose a buddy from the bin to read with.  My kiddo's have fun playing teacher by reading to their buddy.
