In Room 6 Readers Workshop is being used every single day! We follow a schedule of mini lesson, independent reading and buddy reading in a one hour block. Students are taught during a mini lesson a new skill that can be used during their reading time. This lesson is always at the beginning of the block and lasts 15 minutes. After, students move to their independent reading spots. During this time I pull small skill focused reading groups or I will be conferring and exchanging books with individual students.
Students turn and talk during mini lesson to allow for student led discourse.
Haniyah has picked a spot in the room where she can work hard on the new skill she has learned.
After Independent Reading students move into their Buddy Reading Group to work on the set skill with their partner. In this picture Julio and Ali use their "retelling rope" to help support their reading.
