Reader's Workshop

                                                bookworm

 

In Reader’s Workshop, the children have continued to learn new strategies that help them as they read. These include reading with smooth voices (not like a robot), thinking about the meaning of the sentences or story as we read, using punctuation and paying attention to dialogue.

 

We have also been focusing on nonfiction text features. The children have been reading nonfiction books. They have been busy finding nonfiction ‘hot spots’ (important and interesting parts of nonfiction books). Our reading time includes studying nonfiction text features, such as photographs, table of contents, index, glossary, etc., and determining how these features help us when we read nonfiction.  

We are also continuing our Guided Reading and Strategy Groups.
