Ever wonder what to tell parents who want to volunteer during reading workshop? Here is a simple, straightforward way for your parent volunteers to meaningfully check in and work with students. They can use this guideline for questioning as the students are sitting around the room doing independent reading.
I will tell parents to take this along with them as they rotate around the room. In my classroom, their goal will be to meet with 3-4 students while they are volunteering. One big rule, though, is that they will not be meeting with their own children!
I hope this guide is useful for you and your parent volunteers!
