First Quarter Reading

We have begun our Reader's Workshop program that correlates with Writer's Workshop. The students are reading books at their own level daily. They take part in a mini lesson, read by themselves, with a partner, and me.  The decide how to read (expression/mood), give the book a "sneak peek", read more and more, read in bigger scoops, stop-think-retell and stop & jot to remember ideas. The students will work in Reading block daily with students of similar ability and needs. They are to be reading 15 minutes every night. A new Reading log will be coming home next week with a parent letter. Please write in their reading log every night.
