The previous week's lessons in reading focused on procedures, routines and teaching students the importance of asking and answering questions about key details in a text.  You can find ELA Lesson Plans #1 here.  By the end of the week students should be able to ask questions before, during and after reading so that they understand what the text is all about and why.  This week students will continue to ask and answer important questions in order to gain knowledge of details and be able to retell key details in their own words. It's important to gradually grow these reading skills and strategies so that students can start to summarize this information next week and eventually synthesize the information. Regardless of the student's reading level, they should be able to master all skills and strategies when given differentiated text.

During independent time students will build their stamina in independent reading and gain confidence in using skills and strategies in shared reading independently with self selected text.  The other portion of the independent block should be used to teach procedures and routines for independent work such as workstations.  When choosing workstations I use the five core components of reading:  comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, phonics and phonemes.  Each component will be represented in the work stations.  Students can also learn dictionary skills during independent time so that they can work independently to grow their vocabulary, check spelling and grow in grammar knowledge.

During the previous week students learning focused on the hows and whys of writing.  They were able to complete a narrative piece so that teachers could assess where each child has the most potential to grow their writing.  Now teachers can model the basic conventions of writing starting with capital letters, punctuation and using nouns properly so that students can look at their writing and make corrections.  As students gain more knowledge of the process and procedures, the writing block will increase in time.
