After independent reading, have students record and reflect. Young readers will demonstrate their ability to summarize and respond to their reading, and a log is a fun way for them to track their progress. Make copies of this log to use again and again!
Help students prepare for reader’s workshop and practice reading comprehension by sharing about books they’ve read. After taking turns telling a partner all about their chosen books, students will write or draw about what their partner shared.
As students begin to read independently, they may have questions about what they read. These questions should be encouraged! Have students record their questions about their reading or any unknown words on this graphic organizer.
Get ready to learn all about animals! In this week, students will learn about animals that live in different habitats. They will connect to literacy through classic stories like the Three Little Pigs and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
