You have great ideas and are so organinized. Thank you for sharing. My reading is centered around reader's workshop. Students are required to read the basal, independent read, and participate in reading groups. When my class looked at their mid November reading logs, many students have only been able to read 1 or 2 independent reading books. Between reading the basal one day a week, reading Weekly Reader, and reading groups, they don't seem to have a lot of time for independent reading. On average, how many books do the grade level students read each month and how do you find enough time for students to independent read? With reading groups, do you find students are using much of their time reading books and preparing for the next time the group meets?
