Our literacy block is up and running very smoothly!! The students have become so independent and know the expectations during this block. They begin the week by planning out their own personal schedule for each day. Our literacy block is divided into three sections and students can choose from the following literacy activities: read to self, work on writing, read to someone and listening center.
Reading groups are planned and filled in for them but the rest of schedule is theirs to fill in. There are some guidelines to follow, for example, they must do read to self every day.
A reading group works on a written response in their reading journal.
