Love all of the very useful information you give on your website. I have visited it many times. Our district does many of the same things but I do have one question: we were told that we need to meet with our lowest students every day and meet with the other Guided Reading groups at least 3 times per week.
HOw many groups do you have this year? Do you meet with your lowest students every day?
I guess I am confused because my Reader's Workshop time can last for over an hour each day (I see each group only 3 times a week due to time constraints) since I am meeting with five different groups. I noticed your Reader's Workshop time only lasts for 40 minutes, which makes so much more sense to me, considering an hour and a half is too long for kids to be sitting and reading and doing their Reader's Notebooks.
So, I guess I'm asking is it crucial to see your lowest students every day?
Thank you! Your advice is greatly appreciate!!!
