There are many current threads about workshops for math and reading/writing, and i'm very eager to try....I've read Daily 5 and CAFE and have some information on math workshops. BUT I literally have 45 minutes of math a day and 45 minutes of English (reading and writing) so I really struggle with fitting it all in. With my English there's a basal I must follow which includes activities for reading and writing (ex: monday reading comp, tues grammar, wed and thurs story writing, fri grammar). I've heard of people doing Daily 3, and I did do a modified version of this last year. I just feel like I'm sneaking/stealing time from time-slotted subjects I'm not allowed to steal, so I can do a decent workshop. I don't have time for anything!!! It's sooooooooo frustrating. Never thought I'd say I have too may preps/specials! -Is it reasonable to do workshop-type lessons in 45 min? -What do you think about doing a workshop lesson only once or twice a week due to time? Please help!
