I encourage those students to partner read. My students use Flip cameras a lot. So, if they know their partner is going to ask them comprehension questions on camera, they seem to read more carefully. I have also paired some of my students up with kindergarten students. This way they become the leaders and must "teach" the little children. They really enjoy reading to younger students.

    Some of my students don't seem to really read during SSR (look at pictures or flip through the pages.) What do you do in your classroom with those students to get them to really read?

      Maybe you could introduce Tar Heel Reader to these particular students. This may be more interesting for them and pull them into the SSR time. Just a suggestion.

      I have a few students like this, but the one I shared about in my case study was very bad for this. I tried to find books that she was really interested in and made sure she was reading on her... more

      I let them read with a partner. They talk about what they are reading. They also create posters about what they are reading.
