Reflection: Lesson Planning Getting More from the Hermit Crab - Section 3: Reading Rotation


This was the first time I worked with the reading groups in this manner, usually I work with foundation skills when they are with me.  What I liked about reading like this, was my students had more actual reading time reading a more challenging story, instead of a phonics reader.  My two top reading groups were able to finish the story in one sitting and write their comparisons independently.  The two beginning groups needed two days to read and along with a writing prompt to finish the writing.  I believe part of this is they do not have the reading experience as their classmates and still need extra support.
