Welcome to another Workshop Wednesday!
Today, I’m going to share with you how my Reading Workshop is going- mainly the mini-lesson portion of it. Can I just tell you, my very own Better Than Basal product I created this summer to go with all of my mentor sentence texts has been a lifesaver!? And I’m really not just saying that because I made it or because I’m trying to make you buy it… my planning time has literally been cut in half every week because no matter what skill we are working on, 9 times out of 10, my mentor text will align to it. It has seriously been so amazing each week when it’s time to plan. If you want to read more about how I use mentor texts in the classroom, check it out here (but make sure to read the rest of this post for ideas too)!
Over the summer, I shared with you how I set up my Reading Workshop during the Reading In The Wild Book Study.
