HOW TEACHERS CAN USE THIS PARTNER PLAY IN THE CLASSROOM:
The play is five pages in length and includes two voices. I recommend using this resource as a fluency center during your guided reading block or using it with your small groups. Each of my partner plays take about 3-4 days to complete because of the supplementary materials included, but teachers can pick and choose which activities work best for their students’ needs.
