    My K students do buddy reading with the 4th grade and they LOVE it. The 4th grade students choose a book (after learning about their audience), they model the new comprehesion strategies they are learning....for example, they put sticky tape on pages that they want to talk about or at spots where it is appropriate to encourage a prediction, or to model a think aloud! It has been so great! The tangled readers are building fluency without being embarrased that it is a 'kids book" and they are acting as little reading teachers!!
    My K students usually bring one book with them.......they choose a familiar book off the shelf or find a new one they want to hear. They are expirencing book choice and getting 1-1 attention and I know that twice a week my kids are read to 1-1 for 20 minutes. Its a win win.
