As the year continues along I’m feeling more comfortable in my teaching. I feel like I’m getting a handle on all of the subjects, but I think reading workshop time could use a little work. I am struggling to find activities during workshop time that are meaningful and engaging for my students. I usually have the students respond in their reading journals about the mini lesson and then I have them do an activity using their good fit book, applying the strategy/skill from the mini lesson. I have many low kiddos in my room and I find that they have a hard time staying focused. Reading workshop lasts 90 minutes a day. What do you have your students do while you meet with small groups?
