    I am moving to a third grade classroom and I am moving from special education. I am used to only having my kids for 30 mins at a time. I will now have between 90 min to 120 min block of reading. What do some of your reading schedules look like, I am just trying to get an idea.

    I follow a workshop philosophy...short mini lesson (10 minutes ), independent reading and conferences (35-40 minutes), share/wrap up (5-8 minutes). You could use your additional time for reading response journals...:)

    10-15 minute mini lesson
    3- 20minute rounds of :silent reading, reading together, word work, listening to reading (CDs, etc) while I pull groups/individual students
    (regroup on the rug for short 3-5 minute mini lesson between each round, the movement really helps with focus and attention)
    5 minute wrap up

    I do 60 minutes of Daily 5/guided reading (I usually see 3 groups for 20 minutes each. The other kids have a few jobs to complete for the week, and then choose from literacy activities like reading to self, reading to a friend, word work, writing, or listening to reading), then a 20 minute shared reading lesson, then a 20 minute read aloud. Time flies!
