Our reading workshop is a busy, busy time! Students read independently for at least 10-15 minutes. Many students read more when they finish their center work.
Students meet in guided reading groups with a teacher. They read the same book and talk about it. This is a time when they learn reading strategies that are very focused on their individual needs.
At other times students may be working on a center. They may be listening to a story on the computer, reading words around the room, reading with a buddy, writing new words they are learning, or finding new books in our classroom library.
As I said, it's a busy, busy time for us!

We had a surprise cancellation on a recent, beautiful afternoon. So, we grabbed clipboards, paper, and pens and headed out to see what we could explore. We found buds popping out on trees, flowers sprouting from the ground, and all manner of plants. Students wrote about and drew what they saw and their observations were fabulous!

After the excitement and joy of having Yertle the Turtle and the fish from the Cat in the Hat joining us we decided we needed a new guest. So, Duck from Click, Clack, Moo and many other wonderful books has joined us for a while. He has greatly enjoyed reading other books and his new friends' writing.
