Guided reading and writing workshop:
Reading and writing are taught in a workshop approach. What this means is that the children work individually, with partners as well as with a group. A big part of the workshop includes conferring with myself and their classmates. The process is similar to adult book discussion groups, however, it includes instruction. It is important that the children read each day both in school and at home.
Encouraging your child to read daily individually, reading together with your child or reading to your child are proven to increase fluency and comprehension.
The specific reading /writing curriculum can be seen on the district website.
