End Reading Workshop With Home Reading Instructions
- Grades: 3–5
My students are expected to read at least 15 minutes at home every night. Usually during the last 5-10 minute period of Reading Workshop, I remind them to use the new strategy or concept that I taught during the current day's mini-lesson while they are reading at home.
On some days, I even ask them to continue doing the IDR task at home. On these days, they will bring home their Reader's Notebook so that they can record their thinking as they read their required 15 minutes outside of school.
