    Reading Workshop

    This would be a perfect time to let them have some choice over their reading and allow independent reading time in the classroom. You could also weave some of the strategies and skills from the benchmark into your reading workshop by having them apply those skills to their independent reading. I have to use a basal reader, but I also incorporate reading workshop into my language arts schedule. I LOVE those weeks when we don't have to do a story from the reading book, but, rather, we can devote time to the joy and pleasure of reading. I also do Writing Workshop where students develop stories in Writer's Notebooks. They could do this and work on original stories. Time spent in Reading and Writing Workshop gives me so much more insight into the students as readers and writers than anything else I do.
