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!
