Teachers will utilize CAFE/Fountas and Pinnell comprehension strategies during the mini-lesson in reader's workshop.
Activity: Goal Setting
Students will learn how to create widely important reading goals and keep track of their own progress through graphing in their data binders.
Strategy 2: Word Recognition and Study
Students will use phonics and word study skills to help them decode, and use context clues when they encounter unfamiliar words.
Activity: Sitton Spelling
Teachers will plan lessons using the skills and concepts from
each unit of the Sitton Spelling Program with Fidelity.
Activity - Fountas & Pinnell Continuum and Assessment Guide
