my 6th graders this year (yes, i'm already in school) HATE reading! we read our second story last week and it was painful. First of all, on a whole they have very low fluency, so listening to the story when they are reading is very dull for them (and me! :lol. I did tons of partner reading and group reading last year, but my students this year do not get along and i'm struggling to find groups and even pairs that work well together. we are stuck to open court, i can't break away from it to do lit circles or anything. So what things do you do to teach whole class reading? How do you break up the monotony?
