Primary Points to Ponder
- Put in for a sub as early as possible. The system stops contacting subs between the hours of 8:00 pm and 5:00 am.
- Put a time sheet in time clock at the same time.
- Get your duty covered.
- Text Walker (903)738-6908 after 6:00 am if you are going to be out at the last minute one day.

What is it?
Short mini lesson focused on one topic (link it to yesterday, teach today’s new topic, practice it and then send them off to practice it)
While they’re in independent reading, I confer with my kids to see how they’re practice the skill I taught that day or other reader skills that have already been taught. I’ll also do a quick midworkshop teach point to point out the good things that I am seeing, to remind of expected behavior if they are struggling and to point out the ways that someone may have solved a problem.
Share time! I usually pick a few students that I want to share OR I let them share in partners and join in the conversations with them to help the kids that may struggle to have those conversations.
Participate in the mini--lesson, then they read independently or in partners, then we share at the end of that time.
Abrams: Book Bags! I was trying to figure out an easy way to organize from the beginning of the year and the kids have book bags helps them to get started reading right away.
“Witch fingers” have worked well as “linger fingers.” They can earn one each day once I see them reading, but if they get off task, I take them away.
Yoder: My students choose their own spot for reader’s workshop, but they have to stay put once they get there. This doesn’t work with every class I’ve had. This class seems to do better with the choice.
I keep the lights low and music on during workshop to help keep my students calm.
