Looking for quick and easy activities to do during Guided Reading? Tired of spending tons of time finding resources to make your Guided Reading meaningful? Come and snag up my Sampler pack of The Ultimate Guided Reading Toolkit!
Here is what you will find in the SAMPLER pack freebie!
The first activity is a Reading Strategy Activity that can be used with any A or B leveled book (Fountas and Pinnell leveling system). It is a simple one-to-one match activity. This activity should only take a quick few minutes of your Guided Reading Lesson time. The students point under the colors and say the name of the color while the teacher talks about how we only touch the dot one time and if the color is RED, then we have to say RED. We cannot say BLUE if the color is RED. This is then related to reading. The teacher uses the easy sight word sentences to have students match the words one-to-one. The students cannot say THE if the word is MY for example.
The second activity is a Word Work Activity for any book leveled F-N. It is an Inflectional Endings Activity (-ed, -ing). Before reading the new book for the day (that should have some endings in it) the students will take turns spinning the spinners to make words with -ed and -ing endings. I have the students write to words that were made onto their whiteboards. Again, this is a quick but FUN and ENGAGING activity that the students love.
The third activity is a Comprehension Activity for any book leveled A-N. The activity teaches about Character Traits. The kids use the Character Cards to talk about the characters in the story after reading. Depending on the level of students, you can use easier or more difficult traits to describe and discuss the characters.
I hope you can use these activities in your Guided Reading Groups!
