This is a list designed to make small group reading time more independent and productive for your students. It allows them to take responsibility for what tasks they are to complete during the entire small group reading block. MWT Assignments mean assignments that you are giving them at your Meet With Teacher group, whether it is practicing fluency, answering comprehension questions, or practicing decoding a list of multi-syllable words. The blank spaces allow students to write in the assignments before leaving your group, since the tasks may be different from day-to-day or week-to-week depending on how your reading block is structured. Must-Do tasks are ones that you decide for them - they are the tasks that students must do once they complete each assignment. For example, my school uses the Lexia program for struggling readers, so something they must do is Lexia on a computer. If students have passed out of Lexia, they use a different computer program called Readworks. If your school doesn't have access to student computers, a must-do task could include a vocab packet (using the Frayer model).
May-Do tasks are ones that you, again, decide for them that are considered the "fun" activities they really enjoy. For example, my kiddos really love using the website Epic! where they can read books of their choosing online. These are tasks that they can work on if there is still time remaining, and it gives students motivation to get their mandatory work completed at a timely manner.
I have attached a blank form for you to edit according to what you want your Must-Do and May-do tasks to be. This tool can also be used during your math block as a way to give them options of tasks to work on if they complete their tasks early.
*NOTE: When printing copies for each student, printing (at least at my school) can sometimes mess up the formatting. Print one original copy on a color printer first (if possible) and then make however many copies you need.
