TEACHING GUIDED READING STRATEGIES
One big step in teaching guided reading is to model the strategies and to teach them how to use the strategies in their reading. We teach the strategies explicitly. Click on the picture below to access a FREE 14 page packet of ways to teach the strategies at the beginning of the school year.
GUIDED READING ACTIVITY GUIDES
In our classrooms, we have developed reading comprehension guides for many of the books we use in guided reading. One novel example is our FREE novel guide for Bridge to Terabithia. Our reading comprehension guides contain specific comprehension and other strategy questions for the students to answer. . You can simply click on the picture below for the FREE 46 page guide and answer key.
AFTER GUIDED READING
When students are done reading, and have finished their comprehension guides, we have them do some fun activities that relate to reading strategies. You can click on the picture below to access a FREE end of story project choices sheet that can work with any novel.
ASSESSING GUIDED READING
One of the most important aspects for a teacher is to be able to assess your students understanding of key reading strategies during guided reading instruction. It is often hard for a teacher to do this without some form of assessment guideline or rubric. We have created the following assessment rubric and scoring sheet for this purpose, just click on the picture below for the FREE download. This assessment helps us keep anecdotal records of each of our students and to do a comprehensive look at their abilities in guided reading groups.
