I teach 2nd too. We have both "social snack" and "working snack" depending on the day. More social snacks than regular snacks though. My students don't have lunch until 1pm so snack is a must.

Something Radical...

I don't assign seats at all! My students choose where they sit during independent work times. They know it's a big deal so they work hard to make good choices about their seating. If they notice they...

Learning Centers

How about first thing in the morning? When I taught first grade we were mandated to make the first 45 minutes of the day developmental play (centers). I loved it. It made for an easy entry into the...

I let my kids choose what they want to use. They just aren't allowed to erase, ever. During writers' workshop or any other academic time they are only allowed to cross out so they (I) can see their...

Don't do centers

Something that has worked for me in the past is having set days for guided reading and set days for conferring- all in the context of a readers' workshop format. Your kids should be able to read for...

No theme...

at my school. No one does themes for their classrooms either, we just go for warm and inviting with no pre-made materials. I still don't get the whole theme thing at all.

I do it!

And love it! I've been using Readers' Workshop for 8 years now. I'm not a strict adherent to Lucy Calkins units of study though. I use the general structure of a mini-lesson but if a part is missing...
