Strategies for Solving Challenging Words

"We talked about strategies to solve challenging words, and let me just say, this was a powerful discussion. The kids came up with most of these ideas. Then we practiced some with our article of the week because nonfiction has some tricky words. We'll continue to review these strategies next week." -Erica, Out of This World Literacy Member

"In Lesson 2 of Launching Readers Workshop, students got comfortable beginning to talk about what they are thinking while they are reading. They loved sharing their thoughts about different texts were reading." -Kim, Out of This World Literacy Member Teacher Pay Teachers, Teacher Resources, Teaching Ideas, Common Core Curriculum, Readers Workshop, Reading Lessons, Anchor Charts, Fourth Grade, Third Grade

Reading is all about thinking!

"We used ENEMY PIE as our text for our mini lesson 3 in Launching Reading Workshops. Using a picture book and one we had read before, provided them with a familiarity of the book to really examine how they felt and pinpoint the evidence." -Kim, Out of This World Literacy

A Lesson on Finding Just Right Books

"We had a great discussion about choosing “just right books” last week. It was interesting to hear them determine and explain their thinking as to why a book would or wouldn’t be a good fit. Now as I see them choosing their books for the week, they are going beyond just choosing a popular book. They are analyzing the cover, skimming the words to determine if it’s a good fit for them." -Kim, Out of This World Literacy Member

A Lesson on Finding Evidence

"In Finding Evidence Lesson 5, students thought deeply about civil rights and finding evidence to support their feelings. Many were conflicted because they couldn’t relate to treating people in the manner MLK was treated as a child. Even as they came to a conclusion of one race being cruel — they determined they couldn’t blame the actions for a some people on an entire race. I was very proud of their maturity and sensitivity as we discussed this topic." -Kim OOTWL Member

A Reading Lesson on Finding Text Evidence

"Our discussion about Evidence was a success and pushed the students thinking by the end of the lesson. Who did they believe in the story? By having to address how they felt first, then identify the evidence of their thinking, the students didn’t want to end the lesson! They wanted to keep digging and find more evidence because they were so conflicted! What a great problem to have! This lesson teaches the students we can experience many emotions when reading and helps them gain perspective"…

A Reading Lesson for Finding Evidence

"This anchor chart is from Mini Units of Mastery: Finding Evidence Lesson 1. Our mentor text was THE TRUE STORY OF THE THREE LITTLE PIGS. This a great text to use for this lesson because the students are so conflicted about their feelings as to whether they believe the pigs or the wolf. It brings about awesome discussions and the students were so engaged in this lesson." -Kim OOTWL Member

Make Writing Personal

Back when I first started teaching writing I really didn't know what I was doing. I used to have the class all write about the same topic. I knew I wanted to make their writing more personal, but I didn't really know how to make that happen. When I was in graduate school I started to learn new strategies for teaching writing, and that's when everything changed! My post-graduate degree helped me take the new writing skills and turn them into effective mini lessons. Check out more…

Generate Prewriting Seed Ideas with This Lesson!

"We talked about planting seeds and how not every seed will grow but that writers often write their "seeds" down to explore what they could write about at a later time. We generated a list of ideas that writers could write about. Then I had students go back to their desks during independent practice and choose 3 topics and make lists under those topics....each on a separate page in their WNB."

Fiction v. Nonfiction

"During our mini lesson we discussed what makes a book fiction vs nonfiction and then determined what our read alouds were. This is a working chart and we will go back and change or fix ideas that were written down initially. Then students went back to their desks to determine if their independent reading book was F or NF and to list text features to support that." -Erica, Out of This World Literacy Member

Gathering Ideas as Writers

"We discussed how writer's use different strategies when they prewrite. I also used Ralph Fletcher's book on WNB to help students brainstorm different ideas. It fit perfectly with the read aloud that I used from Jen's resource, 'Mr. Fletcher Teaches Kids How to Write'. After the mini lesson, students went back to their seats and I had them practice making a web and a diagram with two different topics. They loved it! The sharing part is always the best!" -Erica, OOTWL Member
