How I End the Reading Workshop Period

By Beth Newingham on June 7, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

During the last 5–10 minutes of Reading Workshop, students gather back on my reading carpet to reflect on their work as readers. I reinforce my teaching point for the day and emphasize the importance of continuing to use the strategy that I taught whenever they read from now on.

I also give students a chance to share their reading work. Since I certainly do not have time every day for every reader to share, I vary the way I allow my students to share.

I have been reading and following your suggestions for many years now. I have a questions about the center activities listed on your third grade word study overview. I would like to make some games for my second graders. Do you have links of your activities or where I could buy them?
