The 5E model:
E1 Engage the students
E2 Explore (read aloud)
E3 Explain (teach mini lesson/ discussion)
E4 Elaborate (application/ demonstration)
These lessons were written to be used in a reading and writing workshop model. They could also be used in centers. We often gave the DRA or developmental reading assessment as our evaluation in reading and developed writing samples as checkpoints in student writing.
The lessons come in bundles by quarters (4). There is a reading and writing lesson plan for each day. (some continue on for many days).
I have also provided an overview of each week and some units are thematic.
