Thanks for pointing out that my suggestions are not just for working moms! I know that even before I had kids my school life/home life balance was not in check! I would spend hours at school and devote entire weekends to lesson planning. Although I am now grateful for all of my hard work in the past (as it saves me time now), I began to realize that I needed to put more time into my personal life as well. My husband reminded me of that often:)
You asked about my reading workshop units of study. I actually worked with a few other teachers to write our own reading workshop units for the 3rd grade teachers in our district. While I cannot share those here on this blog, here is a link to a great website where you can find some great reading workshop units of study for all grade level K-5: http://curriculum.dpsk12.org/index.htm#lit_pg
Lucy Calkins is also coming out with her own reading workshop units of study. Here is a link to more information about her new product: http://www.unitsofstudy.com/teachingReading/default.asp
I hope this helps!
