What does the Reader’s Workshop look like in 2A?
Whole class reading strategy mini lesson (10-15 minutes)
Our teacher will introduce a reading strategy to us during this time and show us how to use it effectively.
Independent reading and conferring (20 minutes)
Everyone in grade 2 has their own book box. This is where we put our good fit books. During this time we will read a good fit book independently, practising the reading strategy that has just been covered during the mini lesson or a goal that our teacher has given us.
Purposeful reading tasks (20-25 minutes)
During this time we work on a purposeful reading task. The focus is always on reading and/or responding to reading.
Reflection (5 minutes)
This is where we reflect on our learning.
