2nd Graders are engaged in many different activities during Reading Workshop such as guided reading, word study, independent reading, and reading response. Although guided reading is differentiated, all students are strengthening their reading by working on their fluency and expression. As well as thinking within, beyond and about the texts they are reading. They are learning how to summarize and search for evidence as well as think about how the text is organized and what the author does to keep readers interested. We also read aloud a variety of texts and engage children in thoughtful conversations throughout the books.
