I had it copied on green paper so that it would stand out. Students put it in their Literacy Binders under the category Reading Strategies.
The students were on-task and active. They had targeted conversations and were cooperative.
During Independent Reading, students met with their partners and completed 3 of the boxes in the grid to complete tic-tac-toe.
So teach like a pirate and turn plain old buddy reading into tic-tac-toe partners!
