Just Right Reading

“Just Right” Reading During the First Week of School

Reading is taught through a “Reader’s Workshop” approach in our classroom.  We read and interpret stories together, but a portion of each day is spent reading self-selected books from our class library on each child’s individual reading level.  We believe that reading is a skill developed through use.  As the children read, I conference with them to check comprehension and to validate that they are successfully applying skills and strategies. I want reading to be a pleasurable time, so they are allowed to get comfortable at their desks.
