guided reading help

I am being evaluated this year and was told to do a guided reading session. I've done this with the lower grades, but was needing some guidance for doing this with grade 4's. Can anyone offer any advice on how I should do a guided reading lesson?
Thanks!

Do you have guided reading books for different levels? Hopefully you do. If not you can join Reading A-z and print some off.

Base your guided reading groups on assessments. Test for fluency and reading strategies to find out what each student needs to work on. Schedule your guided reading just like you would for lower grades, but work on comprehension more.

I like to teach the whole group a strategy and then use guided reading groups to reinforce it. I have a CAFE form that I have typed up that I use with the students to monitor reading. We discus this in our guided reading groups.

Rascal2, we've got levelled books. As this is an evaluation, and we have a picky admin, I don't want to disappoint.

I've vaguely remember someone mentioning that they give a question/phrase before reading to get the kids to think about something before they read. Does this ring a bell for anyone?

Yes, Guided Reading usually starts with a preview of what the students are about to read. Have them look throught the table of contents. Go over each one and have them give you some questions/ comments about them. Then have them flip through the book. Have them all read silently. Listen to one student read aloud at a time. Take ancedotal notes (this will make you look awesome to your admin). Have them respond about what they read in a reading journal of sorts.

I usually have the rest of the class doing silent centers during this. Watching the rest of the class during GR is the trick of it all...

Good luck! And remember GR is just about READING; sight words, fluency etc...

Each group should be no more than 5, and last about 15 min

Hope this helps.
