6-Week Planning Guide for Launching the 90-Minute Reading Block


by Kristi McCullough

Starting up the 90-minute reading block can be overwhelming. There are so many considerations— What stations do I introduce first? When do I conduct individual reading assessments? What skills should I teach my readers first?

Kristi McCullough has developed a 6-week planning guide to help teachers put it all together. The calendar includes lesson suggestions for every day of the first six weeks of your K-5 school year, including:

  • Reading mini-lessons
  • Routines & procedures
  • First literacy stations
  • Managing assessments
  • First meeting with small groups

Each week of mini-lessons centers around a different goal:

Week #1—Setting Expectations to work independently

Week #2—Making Choices while working independently

Week #3—Cooperating with Others while working independently

Week #4—Transitioning Efficiently while working independently

Week #5—Following a Plan to work independently

Week #6—Managing Time while working independently

This is a great resource for those looking for specific lesson direction on how to most effectively use the 90-minute reading block.
