Read Aloud with Accountable Talk is the heart of reading work.

During this TWO DAY workshop, we will look deeply at boosting oral fluency, articulation, listening skills, student comprehension as well as starting the writing about reading process early in the year.  When children are orally fluent and can have thoughtful conversations about books with others, the transition to writing those ideas down becomes less daunting for both students and teachers.   “Talking fluency is connected to writing fluency!”   Topics covered will include:

  • choosing quality literature that is age appropriate for the grade.

  • planning clear moments of modeling for children, turn and talk, partnerships and grand conversations.

  • writing structures that will develop from stop and jot to write long.

  • reader’s notebooks: getting them started and ideas for growing them across the year.

Teachers will leave with their own readers notebook to use as a model for their students as well as planning created for read aloud.
