This is a Reader's Workshop Guide that should work well for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. This pack is my method, "Molly's Method" and it explains how I make it work.

If you have been doing reader's workshop in your classroom for years and feel very comfortable with your plan then this product might not be what you are looking for. This will be very beneficial to a teacher is trying to figure out how to implement the workshop model, how to introduce it to his/her students, and how to make it work. :-)


This reader's workshop guide will explain exactly how I set reader's workshop up in my upper elementary classroom. I will explain exactly how my one-hour reading block is set up for each day of the week.


I also sell this pack in a large reading tools pack. The bundle pack includes many of the extra activities I refer to in this reader's workshop pack.

BUNDLED READING COMPREHENSION (and more) BUNDLED Pack for Upper Elementary


Management is sometimes what keeps teachers from fully implementing this method and not moving away from the anthology book. This guide includes nearly 40 pages of explanations, printable skill sheets on touches on what the other kids are doing while you are with guided reading groups, to printable skill sheets, as well as a mini book for reading strategies. I have used this model in my class for the past several years, and it works. The kids love it and I love teaching this way!!

It explains how I set up reader's workshop during the start of school.

I also give you links to other products in my store that you might find helpful.
