I am linking up with Five for Friday. Below you will see five of the fantastic things happening in my building. I am also excited to share with you that I this will be starting a new blog with some amazing primary colleagues Laura and Jessica.

We are thrilled to be blogging about reading and writing workshop teaching in the primary classroom.

Happy Friday

My favorite things this week! 


 During Interactive Writing this kindergarten class listed their Super Reader Powers!! 
We had extra bubbles and decided to let the kids write what SUPER POWER they are working on.  It's so important for kids to have individual goals (even in kindergarten)! 



What am I working on as a writer today? This teacher found it helpful to give her student's a few choices. 


What are we learning about from favorite authors?

A first-grade teacher getting ready to conference with students about nonfiction text. Below are some teaching possibilities.

Book Introduction

One of the goals in my building is to find opportunities to create anchor charts with the kids. 

Last week, I taught a lesson in a first-grade classroom on how to give your reading partner a great book introduction. The students did a great job during the focus lesson but the teacher felt like many students did not try this new strategy out during partner reading time. 

We decided that creating an anchor chart would give the student's a visual reminder of how to give a book introduction.  We plan to give copies of the anchor chart to partnerships.
