What is READER’S WORKSHOP?
The method in which we teach Reading is
    through a BALANCED LITERACY
 approach that includes daily Readers' and
    Writers' Workshops, using exemplar
       literature, state standards as the
  curriculum, and on-going assessment of
      individual student needs to guide
                    instruction.

“When students are actively listening to
 and discussing a text, all of the strategic
    actions for comprehending are in
               operation….
   The scene is set for a high level of
   comprehending or thinking together
             through a text.”
              --Fountas & Pinnell

                 Guided Reading
        Guided reading is the heart of developing
                        independence:
   Gives children the opportunity to develop as
    individual readers while participating in a socially
    supported activity.
   Gives individual readers the opportunity to develop
    reading strategies so that they can read
    increasingly difficult text independently.
   Gives children enjoyable, successful experiences
    in reading for meaning and allows children to
    introduce text to themselves.
                          (Guided Reading, pg. 1-2)
        Independent Reading
  Through sustained reading, students practice
   reading skills and strategies they’ve learned in
     read aloud, shared, and guided reading. The
teacher supports students through conferencing.
  Students choose their own books. Most of their
 time should be spent in books that are just right
    for them. Students learn to self-select books,
          respond, and discuss their reading.
            How can you help?
   Spend time reading enjoyable books.
   Explore the world of nonfiction: brochures,
    catalogues, maps, restaurant menus, how-
    to books, field guides, magazines, and
    newspapers.
   Talk about the things you read with your
    child: What did you love? What made you
    laugh? What made you cry? What
    confused you?
It only takes one book…
“What counts in the long run, is not what you
  read; it is what you sift through your own
  mind; it is the ideas and impressions that
    are aroused in you by your reading.”
                         Eleanor Roosevelt
