Reflection Questions: Readers and Writers Workshop

  • How are you setting up scholars to work on specific reading skills aligned to standards when they are reading independently?
  • How are you supporting scholar learning by providing anchor charts that they can refer to when reading and/or writing?
  • How are you monitoring scholar's learning and progress toward mastery on standards?

Important Information

  • Please remember to teach a small mini-lesson on lunch expectations
  1. Students must get an entree and fruit or vegetable when they go through the lunch line.
  2. All unwanted items can be placed on the center table.
