guided reading

Hello! I've been doing guided reading groups my entire career. I teach first grade and we've typically started our reading groups at week 5 or 6. At our last day of post-planning last month, my principal announced that this fall we are to begin groups week one. I trust her implicitly but I'm not completely sure that I understand what that will look like. Honestly, at this point I'm visualizing 4 kids sitting at the table while 20 others are running wild (did I mention that we are not to do any centers?)!

Has anyone out there ever started groups that early? If so, I'd love some pointers.
TIA

I guess I would do some sort of daily 5 type thing, and from the beginning my "group" would be sitting at a table practicing reading to self while everyone else sat and read to self building stamina. I would have a group at my table, but we wouldn't necessarily be doing guided reading. I could make it look like it, though. Maybe do some short testing during that time.

It is ridiculous when leaders dictate what we are to do when their either don't know or don't remember what it actually looks like in a classroom!

What?? Your P has been a teacher, right? What she/he is recommending are so not best practices.

How on earth can you start GR on week one? By just assuming last year’s DRA levels are correct and there was no loss over the summer?

Not to mention having to teach routines and procedures? That takes time and practice for students.

And no centers? What?? No read to self, listen to reading, writing, technology, etc.???

I personally think your P is out of their mind. I’d be very surprised if there wasn’t a lot of pushback taking place.

If it were me, I would just smile and nod, play along, then close my door and do what I know works. Good luck!

I replied on the other thread, but I wanted to ask about the centers. Sometimes when people say no centers, they mean only do reading. Is that what your P means? My kids do independent reading, partner reading, listen to ebooks, and do word study practice.

Personally, I wouldn’t trust her implicitly on this one. It takes weeks to teach the routines and structures of Daily 5 or whatever centers you’re doing. I like po’s sugggestion of having them sit and practice.

I’d also ask my P what she thinks it would look like.
