Umm... I think you're going to have to be a little more specific. Does your district provide you with curriculum?

We have C-scope, but other than that I'm pretty much on my own.

Workshop Style

You could do Reader's Workshop where you focus on a specific comprehension skill whole class. You would vary the depth the students are expected to perform the skill and individualize based on each student's reading level. A great website to get you started would be ReadWorks.

You could do Writer's Workshop for Writing. It allows students choice and you teach mini lessons based on the deficit areas you see in students' writings. You conference with students daily and can focus on individual needs then. I use Jennifer Jacobsen and Jessica (maybe Jennifer) Meacham helped get me started. Lucy Calkins is also highly respected in the field.

I suggest looking at Jan Richardson's website on guided reading. She has lots of information for all levels of reading and also videos to show how to do it. I use guided reading groups, leveled according to their ability and it works great. We also keep a reading response journal and each child does all of his written responses in this book--it also serves as a record of growth over time. We write every other day, sometimes more during reading. As for writing, it is hard. I have found that if I have the student say what he wants to write and we talk it out, the work is better. Many of my students need 'magic lines' for the words in their sentences. This helps them learn spacing and to write what they say. Lucie Caulkins is an excellent resource. There is also information on guided writing on the Jan Richardson site. Some people like the 6 Traits but I think it is a little difficult for my students. Just try different things and you will find what fits your teaching style.

I'm glad you liked the Jan Richardson site! Guided Reading has really helped our students learn to read. It is also interesting to teach and the kids love it!
