What is Workshop?
  • Workshop routines and structure are kept simple and predictable. 

  • Explicit strategies are taught through a mini-lesson (which is a short teacher-led lesson).

  • Children learn predictable language (for example, “Today I am going to teach you…”).

  • Active engagement- send off to read/write/problem solve.

  • Independent practice/small group or 1:1 conferring.

  • Come back to share/wrap up.

Reading Workshop
  • Our goal is to create fluent readers with a lifelong love of reading.

  • We will build up our reading stamina to 20 minutes of independent reading daily. 

  • Thoughtful discussions around reading- compare and contrast, analyze, make connections and learn to think critically while reading.

  • The year includes a variety of fiction and nonfiction.

  • Keep reading aloud to your child!

Writing Workshop
  • Focus on process- planning, strategy, elaboration and revision- not on the finished product

  • How-to, narrative, nonfiction, opinion and fiction units.

  • Focus on independence and individualized attention in small group or 1:1 conferences.

  • Spelling- students need to know “snap words” and spelling patterns to help with unknown words.

Math Workshop
  • Units on number sense, addition, subtraction, place value, geometry, measurement/time and graphs.

  • Focus on understanding, problem solving and communicating mathematical thinking with others.

  • Math talks, mini lesson, guided practice.

  • Online program- Prodigy and other games.

  • Numeral handwriting and skip counting/patterns.
