Use this toolkit to create the reader's workshop culture you wish to see in your room and teach into effective reading behaviors, partnership work, and comprehension strategies. This resource is ideal for the teacher who implements Reader's Workshop. The 27 pre-made lessons in this toolkit can be taught to small strategy groups or students in a one-on-one conference. Simply print everything, add it to your conferring binder, and use these over and over again each year.
Each small group or conferring lesson includes an anchor chart to use while teaching, a full lesson plan, any needed materials, and small student copies of the anchor chart that students can keep while practicing independently. Lessons vary in structure and include mini-inquiries, guided practice, demonstration, small group interactive read alouds, etc.
