Explaining Readers Workshop to Parents

Does anyone have a letter or suggestions for a letter to explain Reader's Workshop to parents? Since I am the first teacher in my school to teach in a Reader's Workshop format, I'd like to send a letter home to parents at the start of the school year explaining the workshop. Thanks!

I would also be interested in a letter. This is my first year doing it & no one on my team does so I had better explain it well

I re-typed this letter using a copy from someone else on this site. I can't remember who it was so I'm sorry that I can't give you credit. Its a great informational letter so here you go....

I tried to upload the letter but it didn't work...sorry...I'll try again.

NOPE....It won't let me for some reason. I'll investigate and try again later.

There's a "Keep Parents Informed" section (pp. 32-34) in the book, Revisiting the Reading Workshop. These pages are viewable at Amazon with their "look inside" feature. Use the "search inside this book" feature, using the phrase "Keep Parents Informed." You should be able to see these pages. The link below should go to the sample parent letter; you'll have to click on the link "Page 33." After you get to that page, you can click the side arrows to see pages 32 and 34.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0439444047/ref=sib_dp_srch_pop/104-2561198-5154306?v=search-inside&keywords=dear+parents&go .x=4&go.y=7&go=Go%21#

If the above link doesn't work, just go to the main book page and use the search inside feature.

Not sure who to give credit to or if it helps you but here it is. I teach first but I hope this will be of some use.
