    Interactive Read Aloud: The students and I interact conversationally during a story while working on reading comprehension skills such as prediction, clarification, retell and monitoring as well as author, illustrator, and parts of a book. I teach reading behaviors I expect to see them using in independent reading.

    12:15-12:30

    Shared Reading: Reading instruction where my voice is present in the reading along with theirs. I teach reading behaviors and strategies I expect to see them using in independent reading.

    12:30-12:45

    Independent Reading: Students read independently and apply strategies I have taught.

    12:45-1:00

    Interactive Writing: Students and I negotiate text and share the pen in writing. Our classroom walls are filled with student generated, negotiated, and written text. This writing is then used as a resource in their independent writing. I teach writing behaviors and strategies I expect to see them using in independent writing.

    1:00-1:20


    Independent Writing: Students write independently in their journals. I expect them to write sentences with sight words they know and to phonetically spell words they do not know. I expect them to use words in the room that we have read or written as a resource and to apply strategies I have taught.

    1:20-1:30
