I've been using your class website as a reference for a few years now and I've always been interested in the "Reading Workshop" model of teaching. I've always had to use a specific reading curriculum that doesn't allow for a lot of flexibility. My school is allowing me to pilot a reading workshop model next year with my 2nd graders. I'm very excited, but a little overwhelmed. What do you recommend I focus on first? When you write your plans, what do they look like? I actually loop at my school, so I will teach the same students in 3rd grade, as well. Any suggestions or starting points you could give me would be so appreciated. The resources on your websites are so wonderful and I really appreciate your willingness to share!
