End Reading Workshop With Reader of the Day
- Grades: 3–5
Another way to end Reading Workshop's last 5–10 minute time period is by picking a Reader of the Day. Sometimes I will highlight a specific reader who has done the reading task very well or who I notice is successfully using a reading strategy I have taught in previous lessons.
That student will share her work or model the strategy she used for the class. I even have a cheap little "Reader of the Day" trophy that is awarded to these students who do exceptional reading work. They get to keep the trophy at their desk for the day. It is considered a top honor in our classroom.
