Reflection: Transitions Setting the Stage - Section 2: Mini-lesson and practice routines of Book Clubs


From prior experience, I knew that it is very important to teach the structure of book talks to my students so that they would know exactly what to do and why it is important to follow the classroom expectations.

Today the students just practiced the 4 parts of the workshop:  Gathering on the rug for the mini-lesson, getting their books from the bins and independently reading, moving into their book club discussions, and then returning back to their seats to spend the last 15 mins writing a reflection.
