guided reading....thought and comments

We are going to begin using guided reading in our builiding in the fall. I think that the program looks very exciting. A few teachers used it last year and had amazing results! Some of the teachers are very reluctant to try it. I am not reluctant....just a little scared that I will not do well with instructing the students. I just wanted to get some opinions, thoughts, or comments from people who have used the program. Thanks!!

We implemented it in grades 1-2 this year from Feb. through April with outstanding results in such a short time. The beauty of it is all students are getting extra time reading, both struggling readers and gifted!

We started guided reading last year and I love it... It is a LOT more planning in my opinion. I just worry about how to do vocabulary.

I am glad to see the positive feedback! I also worried about the planning but the teachers that have already implemented the program tell me that it will become automatic as I get into the program. I also worry about room arrangement, indepndent work centers, and keeping it all running smoothly. I guess this is where strategic planning and modeling come into play at the beginning of the school year.

I suggest you check out The Next Step in Guided Reading by Jan Richardson. It made GR so much more enjoyable for me!

Guiding Readers: Making the most of the 18-minute guided reading lesson by Lori Jamison Rog is full of great ideas.

We did guided reading for about 3 years then our school district did away with it. Now this year they are going back again. I love it for all grades. I have done it with 3rd, 5th, and 7th. It lets you see who really knows how to do the skills and who needs help. Also it gives you a lot of one on one time with your students. You need to be very prepared though for it to work. Practice with the students for the first couple of weeks. Make sure your centers for the other students are meaningful, and the students can do the work. Give them choices that way your lower students can do the work too.

Guided Reading

We have been doing guided reading for several years and I love it. I feel it helps me really understand where my students individual strengths and weaknesses in reading are and how best to help them. It is very easy to track progress.
We were reluctant to begin this at first because we were used to the basal and it was kind of a crutch in both planning and teaching. Almost all kids are eager to come to the reading table every time because they read a new book every time. Except for my lowest/struggling readers. They often keep the same book for a couple of days.
I schedule 4 groups daily. Last year because of my student's more varied levels, I had to have 5 groups. I saw the lowest 3 every day and alternated the 2 highest groups. We use the DRA levels.

guided reading/reading workshop

Like many of my colleagues, I teach guided reading groups as part of my reading workshop block. After the focus lesson and a few minutes of roaming and kidwatching to get the students settled into their RW activities, I begin GR groups. I usually teach 1-2 two groups each day, depending on my plans for the rest of RW (individual coaching/conferring and strategy groups I might pull).

One of the keys to successful GR instruction is being organized. I prep for several days of lessons based on my notes and observations so my plans and materials are ready for GR.
