 We have 3 different workshops in First Grade. Reading Workshop Writing Workshop Math Workshop  Workshop is composed of three components: Opening Workshop Closing What is “Workshop”?

 We will statements are introduced at the beginning of every lesson. This lets each student know what we are learning during that workshop.  I can statements are also introduced at the beginning of the lesson. The “I can” statement lets the student know what they will be responsible for knowing or showing at the end of the lesson. What are these “We will” and “I Can” statements?

 During opening, students are gathered as a whole class  The teacher introduces the objective using the “We will” and “I can “ statements  Students are taught content and skills they will practice during the workshop.  https://www.dropbox.com/s/4abxrcm8mu059az/Video%20Sep%201 2%2C%209%2051%2033%20AM.mov?dl=0 (Partner Talking) https://www.dropbox.com/s/4abxrcm8mu059az/Video%20Sep%201 2%2C%209%2051%2033%20AM.mov?dl=0 What happens during Opening?
