Daily targeted Mini-lesson: Provide students with a repertoire of tools and strategies.

 

Independent Reading  + ample time for “eyes on text” using engaging 

and instructionally appropriate texts

              

Individualized instruction:  1-on-1 conferring and targeted strategy groups as needed.

 

Share:  Students gather to discuss how they used focus skill, and teachers 

connect the work done in reading & writing.  This can be another teaching 

opportunity.  (The reading & writing units are closely aligned!)

 

Cross-disciplinary approach: Connections between daily teaching points and texts we read in science or social studies.
