RW Conferences

Hello! I have a question regarding RW conferences. I have begun conferenecing with my 2nd graders, but this is my first year implementing a RW and I'm not sure what I should be discussing. This is what I've been doing so far:

* Looking at the various books in their book box and talking about the books they like to read
* Having the student read part of a book to me and checking comprehension
* Discussing whether the book is just right, too easy, too hard
* Discussing reading strategies being used and what strategies I'd like to see them start using

Am I on the right track? What else should I be discussing doing conferences? I have a sheet to jot down my notes. How many kiddos should I conference with per day?

Thanks so much for your help!

Well, it is only my first year implementing this as well. Your conferences kind of sound like mine. I do a lot of conferring about just right books and reading strategies with my kiddos. I usually pull a small group or try to amongst all of the required assessing and then confer with about 3 or 4 students. I don't know if that is much help or not.

You have to go to Bookmuncher's blog - Once Upon a Reader's Workshop. She has a whole slew of info on conferences (both before she went to NY this past summer and while she was actually there with all the RW gurus)...

Here's a link:

Hi bleau! Lovebug's right... I did post a lot on conferencing. But also, have you seen the brand new book (that I haven't gotten yet! ) by Gravity Goldberg called Conferring with Readers? To my knowledge, it's the first of it's kind (there are a few on writing conferences, but not reading.)

Bookmuncher what do you know about this book (Conferring with Readers)? It sounds interesting, and of course having a thing for books as I do means that I may be obligated to get it, if it's good.....
