How to help advanced students in reading

I gave my reading assessments this week, and half of my class is low to average, and half are above average. We use Reading Street and a lot of these students know letters, sounds, and all of the sight words for the year. I will need to work on writing with them, but I am not sure how to help them advance when they are already so high. (while the others need everything taught) Any thoughts on what I can do with them using Reading Street? Thanks!

I don't know anything about reading street but in my room each student has their own book box and are at different levels throughout the year. I have leveled books A-J so it works out well and the students just read when they have down time. Then for 10 minutes a day, starting in Oct., I choose 4 kids and they get to sit in a special chair and read a book to the class. The class claps when they are done and they feel so proud. The student could read an A book for a G book. The class doesn't care and they always clap no matter what. Just an idea! :-)

I love the idea of having them read to each other! I've seen lots of kids really enjoy that opportunity. (It also gets you some empathy - they actually learn what it feels like when the "audience" doesn't pay attention.)

If you have parent volunteers, you can occasionally add "book clubs" to your reading time as well. - A few students who don't need to hear the lower lesson you are doing can read a harder book with the volunteer for a little variety. Just take turns depending on how many copies of the book you can get and how many kids your volunteer is comfortable with.
