Mentor Teaching Moves – First Graders Make a Reading Plan #T4TMoments

IMG_4192When I walked into Laura’s first grade classroom during reading workshop, I noticed a boy with a manila folder opened on his desk.   This folder had a green dot on one side and a red dot on the other.  I asked, “Will you tell me about your folder?”

He quickly responded, “Oh, this folder helps me plan what to read.  I put the books from my book bag on the green dot side and when I finish them I move the books to the red dot side.  See… watch!”

The Go/Stop Mat helped this student organize his books and focus during independent reading.   His teacher, Laura, explained that she learned about Go/Stop Mats from Jennifer Serravallo’s Reading Strategies Book.  Several students in her class use these mats to help them read more during reading workshop.   Thanks Laura, for sharing how you use the Go/Stop Mats with all of us.

(For more information on this book, check out our blog post about it.  On Monday we also blogged about Jennifer’s new book– The Writing Strategies Book.)
