Writing Workshop



Reading Workshop


Room 16 is excited to start Book Clubs!  Students will begin by reading a series with a partner while thinking about the craft or style the author uses. With their partners, readers will discuss the plot, talk about the characters, and share what they have noticed. They will continue to read books from the same series while adding more classmates to their groups. Throughout the unit, students will learn to share and form opinions about the books they've read. 

Math Workshop

We started a new math menu focusing on place value and two-digit addition and subtraction.

Some of the games include:

What is the Workshop Model?

Routines and procedures for classroom instruction are the instructional components of the Workshop model.  The model includes:



Typically around 10 minutes.  This whole class direct instruction is delivered by the teacher in various ways.

  • conduct a shared reading
  • read and think aloud for a specific purpose
  • teach a key concept
  • demonstrate a writing strategy
  • direct students in a hands-on activity

Independent Work Time

Students work on their own, in pairs, or small groups.  The teacher circulates to be sure all students are on task, then moves to:

  • confer with individual students
  • work with small groups in direct instruction

Debrief Session:

Teacher brings the class back together at the meeting area to:

  • recap the day's learning
  • check for understanding
  • review mini-lesson by focusing on the work of 1-2 students
  • allow students to share their work with the class
