I do have a rubric to assess my Reader's Notebook, but the way that I use my notebook (including the weekly letters) has changed a bit over the past couple of years. My website does not completely reflect what I use in my classroom at this point. However, you are in luck. My next three posts will be directly related to reading workshop. Stay tuned this Wednesday for a detailed post about reading workshop, complete with a video that shows what it looks like in action on a typical day in our classroom. The post after that will be specifically about Reader's Notebooks. I will describe the different sections of my reader's notebook and provide links to download the updated pages.
