An Essential for Reading Workshop: Classroom Management

By Beth Newingham on July 12, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

Reading Workshop is a staple in my daily routine. During this time, students are reading self-selected books independently. They have chosen the books from my classroom library and have already made sure the book is at their “just right” level based on its color code.

While students are reading their books, I am conferring with individuals, conducting guided reading groups or strategy lessons, facilitating book clubs, etc. For this reason, it is important that I have clear routines and procedures in place to keep my independent readers on task and truly engaged in their reading.

Of course things do not run smoothly every day, but I have found that careful management in my Reading Workshop is the most important factor in its success.
