~Skill and Strategy mini lessons can be given to the whole class on Mondays using CAFE strategies correlated to the Common Core.
~Besides on the CAFE website, skill and strategy lesson resources for doing this can also be found at http://www.readworks.org/. If you click at the very top where it say "My Standards Alignment," you can get lessons aligned to the Common Core!
~Other great resources can be found at Tools for Reading, Writing, and Thinking - one of my favorites!
~Students can then implement the weekly strategy in their independent iPick/Just Right book. You can also follow up with that weekly focus strategy in your guided reading group.
