I pull kids out of their cooperative groups for my guided reading station. I see 2 groups a day. Here are some sample activities:
Computer- various sites- starfall, between the lions, etc.
Library- I have a leveled library and a genre library for them to choose from
Word study- magnetic letters, rainbow words, word hunts, word fam practice, word tusy games
Writing- making lists, pictures from calendars that they can write about, letters to friends, making cards
Skill- whatever focus skill we are supposed to be teaching like sequencing. I usually do the skill i taught last week for reinforcement
Listening- book on tape and written response
Word work- something with vocabulary, sight words. Word wall activities, etc. I also have a game roll, read, write. The "die" is programmed with their vocab. words from story. They roll it read the word and write it on a graph. I will try to find the graph and post it.
Buddy read- as it sounds except i have them in chairs beside each other that are facing opposite ways. not sure if that makes sense
pocket chart/poem- this is often content related. Some kind of sort. Ex- this week they are sorting season words by the season. Or i have done cut up sentences they put in order. Usually a familiar passage.
Big books- they just read and have fancy pointers.
I will try to post the roll read write game soon.
