    Reader's Workshop: In Reader's Workshop, we start our day with a whole group mini-lesson. Student then work independently with a just right book or in a small group with their teacher. Finally, at the end we come back together for a reflection and share!

    Writer's Workshop: Third grade students will evolve into using and writing in a notebook.  Students are learning about the writing process of brainstorming, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing.
