Hi. Can you include an example? Do you just leave a blank for the children to guess what goes there or do you offer choices, put the first letter, etc.? I teach struggling first through fifth graders and I would love to use this idea.
Actually, when the kids are reading to each other they are only leaving the words out orally. In other words, there is no real "blank." The students are reading out loud to each other and when a student does leaves out a particular word, his partner, who is following along in the same text, will read that word and "cloze" the gap.
I know it sounds confusing. I'm working on adding a video!
