Starting Out

Hi! I'd like to implement the reading workshop in my classroom this year.
I'm a first year teacher so everything's new to me... (just a little overwhelmed....!!??!!)
I'm going to be teaching 2nd grade.
I read Debbi Miller's Reading With Meaning, and i loved it. I wanted to know which book i should read next, that will help me with the actual implementation and nitty gritty details of starting out, including classroom logistics and mini lessons... For now i can only afford one...so which one do you suggest?
thanks!

the posts in this room. There has been a lot of talk about starting Readers' Workshop and what to read in the last month or two. I highly recommend RW!

Growing Readers by Kathy Collins. It is a great resource to start off with because she walks you through getting started with specific lessons you can do until you get on your feet.
Also, go find Bookmuncher's blog on PT and read all of her posts. You need to go back and find the old blogs and read them first. there is a link so you can find them. I reread them all the time!
