Tic Tac Toe Reading Partners

I was browsing through some materials I collected at a training I attended at some point in my teaching career. I found this handout meant to remind teachers of different ways readers can work together. I thought it would work perfectly as a Tic Tac Toe game because that's how a Pirate Teacher would use it--hook them with a game!

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!
