We currently have Fountas and Pinnell classroom -all the components. I like much of it but we are finding that the missing piece is for students who are not ready to start Guided Reading. Think pre-A students small group lessons. What do you use for these students?

Honestly, none of my students are ready for me to start guided reading because so many lack the independence required for me to do small groups. I don't aim to start until November or so. By then most will be ready for level A or higher.

However students who are not ready for level A books will benefit from shared reading in their "guided reading" group.

Work on concepts of print, letters, beginning sounds, etc. through shared reading of texts with them.

I'll start by saying that I don't start guided reading until January.
When it comes to those students, we use small groups for phonemic awareness (usually the big piece they are missing) as well as explicit phonics instruction.

All kids are ready for guided reading. It's just going to look different at that level. The bulk of their time in group will be on letter work and phonemic awareness. But get simple texts in their hands. Work on print concepts and echo/choral reading of the text. I really like Jan Richardson's lesson format for Pre-A readers.
