90 minutes (departmnetalized) for RW & WW with Basal---HELP

If anyone uses the Reading workshop with basal and writing workshop model and ONLY have 90 MIN to do so, please share how its done on a weekly basis. I teach third grade.

Also, I know ideally I should have about an hour for reading and an hour for writing, but since I dont I am thinking I will split it 60/30.

60 min for reading workshop
  • 10-15 minilesson
  • 40 minute independent reading to practice skills and respond to reading. Meet with guided reading. strategy groups during this time (two groups 20 min each)
  • 5-10 minute closing/sharing
30 min for Writing
  • 10 min mini-lesson
  • 20 minutes to write (me conferencing with students)
  • 10 minutes of author's chair (sharing)
But where do i fit spelling, and teaching cursive in there?

Please only post if you have 90min for both. I have read so many great ideas only to find out the teacher has 90 min for reading and writing is dring a separate time. Ahhhh.

I have about 90 min for both and I am required to use basal. I do 45 min for each. Mini lesson topics come from basal, kids read from basal and self- selected books. I use one day (Wed) to teach grammar, handwriting (quickly), and spelling. Then I use Friday's WW to give spelling test. I look for grammar and handwriting in WW pieces. I've got one little guy with horrible handwriting. He does extra practice at home.

I am also departmentalized in primary. I have about 90 minutes for reading and 30 for writing/other. If I were you, I'd look into the Daily 5 to structure your reading block. This can be used for K-6th grade. It might look something like this for you since you have 90 minutes total for everything. Students choose between the following 5 stations while you confer or meet with small groups: read to self, read to someone, work with words (spelling/vocab), listen to reading, and work on writing. You will only be able to get in 2 rounds a day for 20 minutes each round but it will break things up nicely for you.

Lesson 1: 15 min. - basal (comprehension)- daily

Round 1 - 20 min. Read to Self: All students read the basal and self-selected books while you conference with individual readers or meet with small group

Lesson 2: 15 min. - spelling (from basal) on Mon,Tues
handwriting on Wed.
writing on Th and Friday

Round 2 - 20 min. Daily 5 choose between work on writing and work with works. On the days you do writing, ALL your students do work on writing and authors chair at end.

Lesson 3: 15 min. - vocabulary or grammar

beachbumteach: I like the D5 model you've mentioned. I am a little confused about "writing on Th & Friday" Is this the only time you teach writing? For example, if I wanted to begin showing the students how to write a personal narrative, I would wait until Thursday to start?

Also, Round 2 of choosing between work on writing and work with words." Can you possible explain in a little more detail.

Also during "read to self" since you are departmentalized...where do you have students keep their books? I do not have enough $/room for book boxes.

Could you possibly attach a sample day/week lesson plan? I think that would help tremendously!!

Also, could reading responses be done during "work on writing"?
