Jessica Kaminski: Guided Reading and Writing Support

Good language arts instruction starts with GREAT teaching practices!

As an elementary school teacher, we have to know it all! Most of us have to be experts in 5 subject areas.  I loved that about being an elementary school teacher, because I was never bored! 

While teaching, I was fortunate to be trained by some of the best and able to use it each day.  I wanted to share the wealth of information with you all!  Take a look at some of the available resources and let me know if I can support you in any way.

Guided Reading

Trained by Jan Richardson herself and implemented across several grade levels using three different versions of her book

Writing Workshop

Trained by the Teaching College to implement Lucy Calkins' units and edit them to student need


Help schools make ELA part of their other content areas by implementing PBL and UbD units.
