I watched all of them and took notes. I have a few questions though. When you have the students create their own anchor charts, do they do this after they have read independently or partner read? How often do they do this a week? How often a week do you meet with students (reading or writing) or do you make sure you meet with all students per week and start again next week? One more thing, I was impressed with the calmness and attention your group had during the fiction mini lesson. That was third grade? If so, how do you establish that. I know it must be from the beginning but do you do mini lessons on proper social skills in class too? Sorry so long!
