Okay, so we have the book bins, the book nooks, the places to get books (which reminds me to get the tubs out this week), our reader's notebooks, what to expect in conferences, we've practiced sharing twice...and this week we are going to start talking about just right books...I'd say our reading workshop is almost ready! We may actually read for more than 15 minutes this week.
Question to others...when do you start reading partnerships with your class?
I'm excited about reading workshop...I'm actually thinking in units...the next unit is Figuring Out Tricky Words. I've already done 3 assessments...just 3 reader's notebooks entries...yay!!! Okay, so they weren't true assessments, but at least I'm able to get some grades, which is what I was nervous about.
