Students have the opportunity to not only read independently during Reader's Workshop, but also to read with a partner. Students sit knee to knee, shoulder to shoulder and share one book together. They take turns "reading," retelling, and/or sharing their favorite part of the book. This interaction and communicating about books is very important so that students see that discussing books is just as important as reading them. You will also see a few more of our reading stations.
1)Students practice matching rhyming pictures. 2)Students clap out syllables for picture cards and determine how many syllables each word has. 3) Students match lowercase letters and uppercase letters. 4) Students look at picture cards and say the word out loud, then determine what the beginning sound is. There are so many ways that different FUN ways for students to "play" and learn with literacy skills!
