FREE - Do you let students "Read Around the Room" during daily independent reading time? This bulletin board display idea was passed on to me from a colleague and it's a lifesaver during Reading Workshop so I want to share it with you too! Simply print, laminate, cut and display the bulletin board set. Write student names on large popsicle sticks and pull sticks each day to select a handful of students who get to "Read Around the Room." #wildaboutfifthgrade by helena

In addition to thinking deeply about texts, the Common Core stresses citing evidence to prove understanding. Mentor texts are excellent examples of literature and the elements you notice in them can then be reinforced throughout students’ other reading and writing.
