Our reading class is a mandated 90 minute block that is not interrupted.  Our class consist of:

  We start reading class with reading our basal story in partners.  Next, I read a story to them that coordinates with our theme.  We then complete a morning message and preview our phonics.  Then we spend about 15 minutes on spelling and phonics.  Our vocabulary comes next.  We love to act out our vocabulary and play many fun games with definitions and sentences.  Then we learn our skill and reading strategy.  Last we go to centers while the teachers pull small groups to read stories that correlates to our basal story.
