A peer reading assessment chart covering a month of work. I use this resource weekly to focus on the children developing their reading and assessing skills. I would do a walk-through and discuss what feedback to record rather than yes or no. By the end of the four week block children begin to record constructive feedback for their partner. I would love to hear/see how you use this resource. Thanks :)
