Reflection: Routines and Procedures Reader's Workshop: Revisiting The Rules And Procedures That Make It Work - Section 1: Warm Up


I often get a little resistance from students during this quick, four lesson unit.  However, two things happen over Winter Break.  First, students forget adult behaviors.  For Reader's/Writer's Workshop to be successful, students must often practice adult behaviors like listening well, looking a peer in the eye, speaking loudly, etc.  Second, students need a reminder of how to read critically.  We spend much time on this at the beginning of the year and after a two week Winter Break, students need to practice.  


Today's Warm-up went well, but tomorrow I want to expand on the behaviors.  In retrospect, I need to explain our workshop planning and remind them what their responsibilities are to help workshop run successfully.
