Reader’s Workshop at Cedar Campus

Thursday, February 09, 2023

This year, all classes at Cedar Campus have started to teach reading using a new structure, called “Reader’s Workshop.” Reader’s Workshop is a lesson structure designed to help students become more effective readers. It includes mini-lessons, independent reading, a range of group or whole class activities, and sharing. In independent reading, students apply taught skills, strategies and behaviours to just right books that they choose themselves.

In the first week of school, all classes were setting up the independent reading routines where students worked out what a “just right book” is for them, organised the class library, built up their reading stamina (aiming for 20 minutes!) and most importantly… did lots of thinking!

We are so proud of all the students and teachers at Cedar Campus for the great start they have made to this year’s reading program. Families can support the students at home by encouraging them to read every night. It doesn’t matter what they are reading: comics, recipe books, sports news or a traditional novel... as long as they are thinking.
