Reading Workshop

After several weeks of discussion, practice and preparation, reading workshop is now officially underway in first/second grade!  Reading Workshop is composed of a 10-minute whole-class minilesson about a reading strategy, genre or text element followed by a variety of approaches to reading.  Our reading workshop schedule differs day by day and may include small, flexible reading groups with me, opportunities to read independently (with books or on the iPad), time to respond to reading in reader’s notebooks, and/or word study work.   It takes a lot of practice and coordination to get reading workshop going but it seems to quickly become many students’ favorite part of the day!
