8:35-8:50 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.
8:50-9:05 Shared Reading: Reading instruction where my voice is present in the reading along with theirs. I teach reading behaviors I expect to see them using in independent reading.
9:05-9:15 Independent Reading: Students read independently. They may choose to read around the room, our shared reading charts, our interactive writing, from the library or from their book boxes
9:15-9:30 Interactive Writing: The students and I negotiate text and share the pen in writing. Our walls in the classroom 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 I expect to see them using in independent writing.
9:30-9:45 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 don’t know. I expect them to use words in the room that we have read or written.
9:55-10:50 Literacy Centers/Guided Reading/Intervention: The students work independently on center activities that practice skills and standards already taught. During this time I pull reading groups and intervention groups
10:50-11:20 Math: Math concepts are taught through read alouds, interactive writing and shared reading. The students are given time for hands-on practice.
