A frame work for guided reading lessons
· Select the text prior to the lesson
· Intro the text

· Teaching for processing strategies
· Discussing and revisiting the text
· Extending the meaning of the text optional

Contrasting Guided reading terminology
Guided reading lesson
Guided reading sessions
The teacher directs the work
The teacher facilitates the work and engages students in assuming reasonability
The preplanned instruction is delivered regardless of the student need or inquiry relative to the reading of the text
The teacher is responsive to the needs of the students within a particular session
Level A – The birthday cake
level a books were made to establish a pattern and repetitive text, one to one match using pictures. Not to have students sound out the words so if they say chocolate instead of brown you don’t correct them.

11. Art / poetry center – label box and shelves so they know where to put the boxes as they remove them and return them
Glue poem and illustrate and read to a buddy. Start with one poem at a time and work to 2 then 3 by the end of the year.
12. Poem – read the poem mix the sentence strips and re place them correctly in the pocket chart and re read the poem.
13. Interactive writing connections to math science and social studies ( during shared writing )
14. During the center time she conducts guided reading groups.
15. Cart for guided reading, magnadoodle, abc magnets dry erase all the books for the week, clip board for lesson plans and note book of history – 3 groups a day
16. Link letters, letter tiles, magnet letters, and letter stamps any type they will need to explore for word work. Alphabet chart, word chart.
17. Listening centers – mark the volume on the player and they cannot make it louder if you do not use head phones. – rewrite their ending to a book such as the 3 little pigs
18. Each guided reading group has a browsing box and they are color codes the books change as they read plus the groups are changing so you can change it as the level of reading changes. ( with our reading series you can do on level, below, and above boxes or use the level they are on for example g books can be up and down one from that level.)
19. Plans themes – for each month
Guided reading video
· Guided reading begins where the readers are – similar strengths and needs
· First intro the text and point out things as you look at the pictures and then have them find the word in the text that matches what they see in the picture
Students in K/1 may not know where you want them to look you need to point at things so they can determine where you are guiding them or what you are talking about.
Does every child have a rung on the ladder in which to step?
Visual attention to print
You have to know that students need to start and build on
Print contains message
Left page before right page
On to one match – tracking they need to know how to point to the words before they can sound or blend the word. (Test this ask the student you point as I read the book.)
Example of teaching one to one match – have objects for students to visualize, we have a duck, apple, cup, robot. Spread them out and I want you to point and name these items. I will name them first and they need to name them. If I put cup, duck, robot, and apple they may not hold their finger still for the whole word. Words with more than one syllable may trip them up and they want to move their finger as they say each syllable.
Semi concrete task color dots on a sentence strip and they have to say the colors. Then go back to book where they were having trouble and repeat until they get the one to one match understanding.
Locate known words – find the word, frame the word, locate the word etc. (islands of certainty, familiar words)
Locate unknown words – do you know which words you don’t know.
Once you know where the unknown word is you can then go to the next step.
When they miss a word go down this list cause they may say a word that does not start with the correct sound/ letter follow this continuum to make them successful readers.
Chunks – word families,
Breaking words into parts
Scanning multiple syllable words left to right
Affixes and root words
Running records and DRA 2 discussion.
