I absolutely love your idea of the "person of the Day" doing a read aloud for a few minutes. I teach fifth grade and have a "helper for the week" which is similar to your idea. I can't wait to try this with my students - it is a clever way to get shy sudents to read to their classmates. They also practice fluency too. Bravo!
Thanks! I am so excited that you're going to try it in 5th grade! I think so many students need this and, yes, the shy students are nervous at first, but they do like it and actually DO it! Can't wait to hear how it goes! Good Luck!
