Today at inservice we were told that we have to implement guided reading this year. I don't know where to start or how to start and how is it different from what I was doing in small groups. I walked out with a huge headache. Some please help!

There are some videos on YouTube that actually walk you through a lesson. You might find that helpful.

What grade do you teach?

Your lesson will look different depending on grade level. I teach first grade. I start by having everyone in the group read silently or as partners while I do a quick running record on one of the kids. I have the kids who are not doing a running record write problem words on white boards while I'm doing the running record. After we finish that, we use the words they wrote in the boards to do some word work.we use white boards and markers or magnetic letters on cookie sheets. Then we discuss the book they're reading, having them find and read the part that answers my question. Sometimes we write sentences on sentence strips and cut the words apart to reassemble. After that, I might introduce a new book if we're finished with the book they've been working on. We do a picture walk, emphasizing tricky words. We read that book aloud together, with everyone reading together. I send that book home with them to read to their parents.

Another big part of guided reading is having all the students in the group whisper read the book (or part of the book that you assigned). They are all supposed to read the book at their own pace and quietly to themselves. I use whisper phones in first grade. The teacher listens in and monitors, assists students when necessary with strategies, gives specific praise, takes anecdotal notes, conducts a running record, etc. There is supposed to be a quick comprehension check at the end of the lesson but sometimes I do that the following day after they reread the book at home once.

*You would need to scroll down a ways because the videos start with Pre-Level A lessons.

for all the wonderful suggestions. After watching the videos last night and doing some more reading I feel a little more comfortable. I'm just going to take it one day at a time and make sure that every transition and routine is taught and retaught.

It is a fabulous book on putting together and running leveled guided groups. Definitely get your principal to order a copy (and you may even want your own.
