End Reading Workshop by Revisting the Mini-Lesson
- Grades: 3–5
Sometimes, at the end of Reading Workshop, I'll revisit a concept from the mini-lesson with a reading task. There are times when the reading task is an extension of a chart or a discussion we started during the mini-lesson.
As students read, they are expected to think more about the concept and then be able to add to the chart when we return for the closing. Their ideas may simply be added on sticky notes they created while they read so that I do not have to spend too much time writing all of their additional ideas.
