4K Parent Meeting Invite
This is the second installment of what Literacy Collaborative looks like in the School District of Black River Falls. Reader’s Workshop is one of the three blocks in the Literacy Collaborative framework.
The goal of this block for primary students (K-2nd) is for students to gain knowledge of the reading process through guided reading where students in small groups read texts selected to meet their specific needs and through independent reading where they read a variety of self-selected and teacher-selected texts. Students engage in conversation about literature and activities that support comprehension of texts. Other students at this time, when not receiving direct instruction, are actively engaged in independent reading, writing, and word study centers.
The goal of this block for intermediate students (3rd-5th) is for students to read for extended periods a variety of self-selected and teacher-selected texts at their instructional levels. They construct meaning through personal and textual connections demonstrated in weekly reading journal letters between students and teachers, regular meetings in guided reading groups, and literature study groups. Students internalize effective comprehension strategies that they apply to fiction and nonfiction texts.
Watch for more exciting literacy information to come!
