Global Read Aloud and Writer's Workshop

We've been working on kicking-off our writer's workshop.  Our normal class period goes something like this:

0-15 minutes: Silent Reading & Reading Conferences
15-25 minutes: Read Aloud
25-30 minutes: Agenda, Announcements, Fill out Assignment Notebook
30-45 minutes: Mini-Lesson
45-77 minutes: Workshop Time

We are getting in a schedule so on Mondays and Wednesdays, we do a reading mini-lesson and then reader's workshop, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we do a writing mini-lesson and then writer's workshop.

Here's some pictures from our classroom:
