I have a childhood friend (that happens to be a teacher too-and yes we are adult friends too) give me a great idea for a series of posts.
I decided to allow everyone a sneak peak into what I hope evolves in my third grade classroom by using some things that I did before in the past teaching third and some things that I used in first and kindergarten (of course, I will refine and adapt to third grade).
I use a Reading Workshop approach in my classroom. I also have decided to include Daily 5 methods in my classroom.
Reading Workshop ideas come from three sources:
2.When teaching kindergarten and first grade, I used Reading Workshop Lessons from The Learning Pad.
(Again, I adapted to my students and found other books that might work too.)
3. My students-My classroom guides my teaching. I allow "teachable moments" to occur regularly everyday. Although I may have lessons planned and ready to go, my students (and the county requirements and state standards) "drive" my teaching and what should or should not be taught.
Other sources that I use for reading instruction:
