Product Description
Readers Workshop in 3rd Grade


Are you tired of bringing your Reading Workshop texts home every night? Getting through the wordiness of Reading Workshop texts can be both daunting and time consuming. In each of my Reading Workshop products for 3rd grade, I have taken out the important teaching points, coupled them with kid-friendly posters, scripted mini lessons, and reading response to match each lesson. Teachers have commented on the ease of use for both them and their students and the increased level of engagement during reading time.

This is a very comprehensive and thorough packet designed to launch and teach Readers Workshop using the units of study listed below. Each unit comes with easy to understand teaching points that tie back to the previous lesson, kid friendly posters that introduce and reinforce each teaching point, reading response sheets in both full and half sizes, and Smartboard resources for whole group activities. If you are looking for rigor and ways to increase critical thinking and self reflection in your classroom, this is it.
I have added HALF SHEETS for every unit for conferring purposes so please re-download the latest version. Half sheets allow your students to glue into their reading notebooks providing enough room for notes from you during conferring and space for additional writing for them!
