The 4-1-1 on Reading Instruction!

Hey friends!

I've got a new vlog for you... and it's all about reading instruction!! Check it out and let me know what you think:


  1. I love love love this vlog. I am an assistant principal and sharing it with my teachers now. I especially love how you addressed still working with students who are reading books you have not read as yet. I get that complete from a lot of my teachers; they're stump on how to help those students. I also love your 'write about it Fridays'. I took notes and cannot wait to implement those routines from the first day of school next school year (yes, I am already thinking about next school year :-(). Thank you soooo much.

  2. Another question :-), where can I find the cards on what students can work, reading faster, etc.? Are they on TpT? I cannot find them. Also, does it come with the post its and bookmarks as well?

    1. Hi!! You can find those here:

      Or, in this bundle:

      Thanks so much for your kind words!!


    2. Thank you. I have another question about your reading schedule. My school also does 50 minutes reading schedule as well and I am trying to incorporate some of your suggestions. My question is how do you time those long anthology stories and still have time for your reading conferences. I found a website that has pre-made text dependent questions but I am still at a lost on how to make my 50 minutes most effective. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    3. Hi! So, the longest anthology story that we read takes about 40 minutes. On those days, that is usually the only thing that we do. Reader's workshop will just resume the next day.

      My typical 50-minute schedule looks like this:

      5 min: Do Now
      30 min: Lesson with story from anthology
      15 min: Reader's Workshop/Reading conferences

      Hope that helps!!

  3. I don't know that how to use these apps. Can you give me some suggestion through by your post. Thanks
