Read my detailed minilesson about how I Launch the Reading Workshop with my Building a Reading Life Unit!
If you want to encourage students to be lifelong readers and writers, these units allow you to delve into their "loves" and "hates" about reading and writing. The information you glean will allow you to create more enthusiasm towards literacy and to target potential roadblocks with class discussions and goal setting.
**If you purchased one of these resources previously, they have both been COMPLETELY REVISED as of June 2016, so please go re-download!**
Instill a love of reading from the beginning of the year with these readers' notebook journal prompts and quotation posters for a unit inspired by Lucy Calkins' concept of "Building a Reading Life." Initiate conversations in your minilessons at the beginning of the year get to know your students as readers and to identify their beliefs about reading that may be roadblocks for them this year. Your "Building a Reading Life" unit will help you encourage every child to cherish reading and create an outstanding "reading life."
