Does anyone mind sharing their comprehension strategies sequence that they followed this year that seemed to work well?

Basically I did Collins at the beginning of the year and then around October/November I did schema.
January-Mental Images
February-Inferring
March-Questioning
April-Non-Fiction
May-Synthesizing

Next year I plan to start schema sooner and touch on questioning sooner as well. This was my first year doing readers workshop and Debbie Miller so I am starting to plan next year out and hopefully I can get more organized!

Thanks for posting this question...it's one I have as well.

Even though I teach 4th, I plan on teaching a timeline similar to this as well.

Kaycee - When you mention Collins, what do you mean? I'm sure it's a type of text, but could you sort of explain what you mean by "I do Collins." What sort of strategy or concepts does that include (and the order you go in if there is any)? Thanks so much!

Kathy Collins is the author of Growing Readers-Units of Study in the Primary Classroom. She is someone who has worked closely and mentored by Lucy Calkins.

Kathy Collins basically gives you the nitty gritty of setting up a readers workshop. At the beginning the year from Collins I basically did...
-We are readers
-Readers build good habits
-Reading strategies
-Choosing books
-Setting up routines and procedures for readers workshop

I hope that answered your question!

My schedule looks about identical to kaycee's... you'll find that growing readers really fills in some MAJOR blanks that are not in reading with meaning. I taught schema in oct. nov. and dec. woven in with more growing readers stuff-- things like retelling, getting your mind ready to read, word strategies, and more are not addressed in reading with meaning, but need to have their own special spotlight. They greatly enhance the children's abilities to attack the RWM stuff when we get there.

When you all say "growing readers," you mean students who are learning the basics of reading...i.e. phonics, phonemic awareness, decoding, chunking, etc.? Or am I not on the right track.

I am wondering b/c I of course won't teach as much growing reader type strategies in my timeline since I am an intermediate teacher. I do have one group of students this year who are ELL students at the emergent almost intermediate level and I go over a lot of phonemic awareness with them.

...is the title of the book that Kathy Collins wrote. I think when we are referring to her book we are primarily talking about setting up the workshop and good behaviors readers do etc. (see above posts). Her book has been invaluable to me in setting up a a readers workshop in my classroom.

While you are talking about comprehension strategies...does anyone have any cute pictures (or a link to one) that would symbolize them, for example: a magnifying glass to represent monitorind and clarifying or a question mark to represent questioning?

Oh my! I'm so confused. I have these books on my amazon wishlist too, but I just can't keep them straight I guess. Thanks for clarifying though. I'll figure it out sooner or later.

There's supposed to be a newer book out for RW at the intermediate level. Isn't it by Collins as well?
I had planned on trying that this summer.
I started RW in January. My time line has been:
Aug. through December - Predictions in Science & SS
January - Connections
February - Visualizing/Schema
March - Inferring
April - Determining Importance
May - Synthesizing
Next year I plan to begin with schema & visualizing, then move on to connections. More reading will help me fine tune things though.

Bookmuncher suggested in another thread that any book by Katie Wood Ray would be good for intermediate or for RW for those who can't afford Calkins.

I found that Katie Wood Ray's books seem to sound great for intermediate. I have already put them on my amazon wish list so I can remember which ones to buy later (this summer).

Study Driven and The Writing Workshop: Working Through the Hard Parts (And They're All Hard Parts)...are two of the texts that I put on my list from Katie Wood Ray.

Thanks teachercarrie. I haven't heard of Katie Wood Ray. At all. Or the titles you mentioned. My summer reading list continuously grows every time I visit PT.

Mine too! My list went from 0 to 4 this past weekend. Then, since yesterday when discovering Katie Wood Ray...it went from 4 to 7!!! I have a lot of reading ahead of me. I am crossing my fingers that maybe, just maybe, one or two of my master's classes will use these texts. But I am sure that is wishful thinking.

your master's courses cover more than mine did! We had a local cohort and the university came to us, so we basically paid for the degree without TRULY becoming more versed and specialized in our particular areas of interest as related to our elem - middle - high school degrees. All those levels were in our cohort at once. GREAT GROUP though. Many good memories. Thus, I read on my own, like many PT veterans! Maybe we'll end up conversing on the same book this summer. That would be GREAT!

That would be really great if we could create our own little online book club. It would help to discuss it with someone instead of just reading it on my own and taking away only I had read.

My masters courses are great actually. For the most part. I am on my 4th class right now, my first class towards my reading endorsement. The first 2 courses I took were so so. A lot of people in my classes are there to just go up on the payscale...which I am doing too. But, I chose a masters degree that I wanted to learn more about and gain knowledge in. One of my best master's teachers said it perfectly, "You get out of it what you put in." That is very true for many of the people in my classes. I love being the whiz kid in those classes...the others make it very easy for me to do that!

Have you read or are you reading Strategies that Work. I'm working on it right now in between my other homework, reading, and lesson planning.

I am interested in being a part of "Growing Reader's"! When do you want to start? We finish school in May, but I know it's not the same for everyone. We can actually put the thread in the Sunflower Room (Debbie Miller) or Reading Essentials. Exciting!

teachercarrie - I've taken a 3 week reading break to allow the 6 books I've read since January to sink in. STW was EXCELLENT. It didn't capture me the way Mosaic or Allington's book did though. The latter two books took me just 2 days to read and I re-read them because I was so interested in them. Do you have The Daily 5? BTW....2 universities are starting Specialist degree programs here in the fall, yet neither one would help me become a reading specialist. I would have to drive 1 1/2 hours twice weekly to go to a university if I want that program specializing in reading. Or do the on line thing, which costs an arm & a leg. With 2 sons in middle school, I don't think that's something I should do right now. I have my doctorate application though. We'll see. Good luck to you. Sounds like you are getting a great deal out of what you are learning. Wonderful for your students! And YOU!

I agree with both of you, we should start a book club thread together for summer reading. Let's plan to do just that! I think "gitt" may be interested as well.
It's nice to know you all are so interested in sharing and collaborating!

I may go ahead and purchase a book today. We have state testing in 2 weeks, so it would be a welcome reprieve by the time it gets here. I'll try to save Growing Readers for summer though.

Hey.... You are on a roll now with all of your book line up!! I would love to do a book discussion group, too.

I just wanted to make sure-- I know I recommended About the Authors by Katie Wood Ray to someone else, but it's truly a very very kindergarten/first grade book and it's one where I don't think a fourth grade teacher would get much out of it. I don't know if it's on your list or not, but I just wanted to warn you.

Comprehension Toolkit

TeacherCarrie,
Have you heard of The Comprehension Toolkit? It was written by Harvey & Goudvis-the same two that wrote Strategies that Work. It takes Strategies That Work and puts it into modules that you can work through in 12 weeks or you can spread them out over the year. It is written specifically for grades 3-6 and is designed to be used with any text even though the lessons mention a particular piece of text. They also provide all the magazine articles for the lessons. The only "other" resources you have to purchase is the 7 trade books that you can purchase as a package. Just a thought.

I would love it if we could do the book club during the summer or very close to it. Then, we could all prepare what we read about in our lesson plans over the summer in order to have them for the new school year.

Pretty please?!

Itchkids...that sound perfect! I will definitely add that book to my list (oy vey, it's still growing!). That may help me even more with my very own comprehension timeline. Thanks!
