    We are just becoming an America's Choice school. We will also be implementing the Reader's and Writer's Workshop. I am also trying to implement the Daily 5 Strategies. I am excited that someone else is going through the same thing that I am. We can help each other out. Thanks for your posters and routines.

    it would be nice if you added in partner time on your routine charts since it's such an important part of both workshops! for my writers workshop, i always do a chart that looks like this:
    how does writing workshop go?
    1. think
    2. plan
    3. write
    4. reread
    5. revise (add on)
    6. edit (fix)
    7. start a new book

    i love doing this because when kids come up to me in the middle of the workshop, i can just point to the chart and say something like, "is talk to miss ______ part of writer's workshop?" sounds a little harsh, but otherwise i could never get conferring and strategy groups done! works like a charm 🙂 the kids are so much more independent when they know how things go!

    This year, I am heavily doing writer's and reader's workshop in my 5th grade class. The whole experience is new for me, but I am really excited about it. I LOVE your signs, and the color combinations of the blue against the black. Can't wait to see more pictures – Looks Great!
