Reading group share

One way to end reading workshop (or to end basal reading time or any other subject matter work time) is to bring the whole class together for a Group Share (or Community Circle or Sharing Time).

The following is a list of ideas of what to discuss during this time. Remember, you can always add your own ideas…

  • Have students share something they learned.
  • Have students share how they applied a skill or strategy in their reading.
  • Have students share how they solved a problem. Ask for alternative ways to solve that same problem.
  • Ask students to line up in two lines facing each other. Have them share something with the person lined up in front of them. Then move one row a person or two or three in one direction and have them share something different with their new partner.
  • Have students share a question they are still wondering about.
  • Add your ideas…
