It sounds like you are implementing guided reading on a regular basis. That is great, especially when you have so many low readers in your classroom. However, I would also be sure to teach a whole-group mini-lesson each day, even if you don't think all of the students will be able to apply the strategy you decide to teach. It is still important to give your students a purpose for their independent reading each day while you are conducting guided reading groups.
Good luck with the implementation of reading workshop in your classroom!
