We spent a lot of this week reinforcing the skills and procedures we had learned last week. In reading, we added Work on Writing to our skill-set. This is very similar to our Writers' Workshop time, except that students can write about whatever they want, and it takes place during our Readers' Workshop time. Work on Writing, along with Read to Self are two of the five tasks students will do during the Readers' Workshop while I meet with students in small groups. Since our stamina got up to 20 minutes in both Read to Self and Work on Writing, we will add Read to Someone to our list of things to learn next week. Below is a video from our Work on Writing time. At the beginning of the video, students are moving around quite a bit. They were still finding their "bubble spots". About half-way through the video, though, you will see students hard at work. I am so proud of their hard work. Being independent with so many tasks is quite difficult in kindergarten, but this class can do it!
