Our district has expanded our literacy time to 90 minutes. In this time I must do reading, spelling and language arts. I used to do reading and LA seperately. We have Reading Streets basal program. We do NOT use of the Daily Five, even though I would like to learn more about it.

My question is....What does your literacy schedule look like?

TIA

Wow....we have a three hour literacy block.

Last year it looked like this:
Words/spelling 845-900
Reading whole class 900-930
Reading workshop 930-1030 including share time
Writing whole class 1030-1045
Writing workshop 1045-1130 including share time

I could never get reading AND writing all done in 90 minutes. I think they are a bit unrealistic with that.

This year it will be a bit different as we have literacy studio no2. We have the same three hour block but it's supposed to flow more and not be as separated as I had it will be interesting for sure!

Good luck!!!

My school requires 120 minutes of reading instruction (wish I could fit in more!) and mandates the number of minutes spent on each subject. This is my first year teaching third grade, but here goes my current idea:

60 minutes: Reading Workshop
30 minutes: Word Study
30 minutes: Writing

I'm still trying to figure out how to work in a read aloud daily.

Btw- we also use Reading Street, but I plan on using it "loosely" this year.

Lang Arts Block

Last year I also had a 90 minute block for Lang Arts, but we use Treasures. Here is how we broke down our time:

Spelling/Grammar/Vocab: 30 minutes (about 10 mn each, give or take)

Whole Group Reading Instruction: 30 minutes

Small Groups/Stations: 30 minutes (I had 5 stations which were: fluency, leveled reading, spelling, grammar/vocab, and "teacher time" which was usually writing, since we never had enough time for writing! I was lucky enough to have 2 assistants during this time, so one ran the fluency station, the other ran the leveled reading, and I sometimes had a parent volunteer who would help at the Grammar Guru station (also vocab mixed in).

All stations were made to be independent except for my station and the leveled readers. Although if the assistant couldn't make it for leveled reading, it turned into Independent Reading. It worked SO nicely....and I don't know what will happen this year since I'm at a new school, and the assistant I will get (just one!) will come during my first 30 minutes, which doesn't really help me at all!! Not sure how to make this work, but I'm sure something will work out and I'm thankful to have the one assistant, don't get me wrong. Guess I was "spoiled" last year with how well my stations went and the coverage I had.

Good luck!

I really need help with stations. What do you do? I have very limited resources so it's hard for me to come up with various center ideas. I can do the typical buddy reading, work on words, writing prompt, etc... but would love MORE ideas, too. Thanks!
