Small group instruction

My small group instruction routine is similar to hrbernard's routine. I make an effort to meet with all of my students during the week. While I teach my mini lesson the reading support teacher, sits with my most struggling students and does the lesson with them and adds all the necessary scaffolding.

Following my mini-lesson, both of us work with guided reading groups. Each group is no more than 20 minutes.

Following the guided reading group, we pull a strategy group again for no more than 15-20 minutes. With the time left over, we confer one to one with the students.

So basically at least 20 students are seen for small group instruction per day. We had to break away from the "low group" trap. All students need to improve their reading skills. We meet at the end of the week to review our notes and see what our next steps are.
