I can't believe how addicted I am to teaching blogs. Everyday I tell myself that I am going to get some work done, but then spend most of my time checking out all the wonderful blogs.
On another note, I need some help and advice about my reading program this year. I have never really implemented readers workshop, but would love to. I have read the Daily 5 books and also the Book Whisperer and would love to do both in my classroom this year. I am just feeling extremely overwhelmed and do not know really where to start. I have never really taught the genres specifically before and I admit I am a bit nervous. Any upper elementary grades have any ideas for how they will be conducting their reading classes this year?
