Clip to ScrapBook #3

What has worked for me in the past (as a 3rd grade teacher) is to only do 1 mini-lesson a day for reading, with a focus on comprehension (thus incorporating the TC UoS). I use Daily 5 for the Reading Workshop time (the kids get 3 rounds/20 mins each at the beginning of the year, moving towards 2 rounds/30 mins each), while I meet with small groups and confer with students individually. Between each round, I check in with the kids, and we have a mini-share -- anyone who was able to use the strategy from the mini-lesson, so there end up being 3 small sharing times instead of just one at the end. I start the year in Sept with launching Dialy 5 and decoding strategies, so that the students have a review of that. Most of them (at this point) need comprehension work, and the ones that still need decoding assistance, I'll work with individually or in a small group.
