Hi! This is the first year a co-worker and I are implementing reader's workshop... so far we have been able to get the launching part of it up and running. (we think haha) Can anyone share a sequence of mini-lessons or guide me in the right direction?? I have found a ton of stuff online but I would like to see what an actual experiences 3rd grade teacher does....please help
Thank you in advance!!

Reader's Workshop Help

Hi--I teach 2nd grade. I am preparing for my unit on metacognition--what a proficient reader thinks about as they read. I am noticing, however, that my class is not selecting appropriate books for their book buckets. So instead of moving straight into metacognition, I am going to do a few lessons on what an appropriate book looks like for each reader. I will then move into metacognition--figuring out unknown words, do I really understand what I just read? What background knowledge do I need/have to understand this better?

Then I will move into schema and connections. The most important thing to remember is to respond to your class's needs. Each group needs to move on at their own rate and hit the skills where they are weak. I don't hit the same lessons each year, it depends on the class and their needs.

Reading Units of Study

Did you see that Lucy Calkins has release a unit of study series for reading grades 3-5? I think it is around $200 from Heineman, but well worth it. The upper grade teachers are using it at my school and although it is overwhelming, the content is great! I'm using Growing Readers by Kathy Collins to drive my mini lessons in first grade.

Hi Jessicamae3! I typed in thelearningpad.com, but I am not finding what you are describing. Are you talking about a teacher's website...she is from S. Carolina? I would love to see the reading and writing plans that you mentioned...maybe I'm at the wrong learning pad site. Thanks for your help!

reading workshop

I would recommend the books Revisiting the Reading Workshop , authors last names are Orehovec and Alley, and Teaching Comprehension Strategies All Readers Needboth published by Scholastic.

However, I have to say that after 9 years of teaching and struggling with the consistency and management of the reading AND writing workshop (while still loving and embracing the philosophy) I SWEAR by The Daily 5 and The CAFE. I would HIGHLY recommend going that route if you feel like you are looking for direction. Get the books and check out the Peony Room.

Hope this helps!

RW mini lesson ideas

One book I have found helpful is the RW mini lesson book from scholastic - if you do a search on the website you should find it. It has a variety of mini lessons and they are very easy to follow. Good luck - I too teach 3rd grade and this is my first year implementing RW. I love it and would love to hear what works for others as well. Good luck!
