Okay cool! Plus now I'm going to check out Escape the Giant Wave, it sounds interesting. I'm assuming that you're doing that whole group with the entire class to work on whatever reading skills you're working on? Apologies if that's a stupid question, it's just a bit different from what I do.
I like the Words Their Way program.
I think the SSR could be done a couple of different ways but it's a bit awkward with 8 kids. Does it have to be completely silent the entire time amongst the kids? I think you could organize book clubs within your class. Assign a certain section of the text to read, provide a discussion prompt, have kids write about it and then have them discuss it. I've also seen kids be assigned roles within the groups.
At our school, they're really pushing us to have the kids read silently and have us have individual conferences with the kids. It drives me crazy tbh so I definitely woudl prefer book groups.
