I am looking for someone to give me some advice on my Reading lessons everyday! I teach in a departmentalized 4th grade so I teach only Reading. I only get 45 minutes each block to teach Reading..and I have 4 blocks a day. I have found it REALLY hard to get all the information in that I need to teach (last year was my first year). I've been getting really interested in doing some type of Reading Workshop but I feel like I don't have enough time to complete it each day. Here was my weekly schedule that I followed last year if it will help Mon- Introduce skill for the week/vocab words Tues-Read the story for the week (Scott Foresman Reading Street) Wed- Review skill/story/vocab...complete study guide usually Thurs- Test on story for the week & vocab Fri- Read leveled readers..tried to do groups and would meet with one group a week I would like to try to keep the weekly test on Thursday. Does anyone have any suggestions??? PLEASE!!!!!
