Thank you to all my teacher friends who have been faithful followers of mine for the past two years. You’ll never know how much I appreciate your kindness, your willingness to share and support. That being said, I thought I’d share some of the things that we’ve been doing this past week.
This unit in Reader’s Workshop we’ve been talking about reading strategies and now we’re working on how to be fluent. Students practiced fluent reading in their book nooks and then met with their reading partners to model fluent reading for each other. I have a lot of friends who ask where I get my plans for Reader’s Workshop. All of my units come from 2 books. The units I cover come entirely from Growing Readers and Debbie Miller’s, Reading With Meaning. They are great books for those of you just starting out using the workshop model. If you are a kindergarten teacher I also suggest you check out Kim Adsit’s, Reader’s Workshop Units. They are amazing and so thorough.
