What is Guided Reading? Guided Reading is an approach that enables a teacher and a small group of children to think about, talk about, and read a book together for a specific purpose. The teacher guides the group in reading through a story that the children will later read independently. Monitoring and evaluating progress are done during this reading. The material to be read is selected based on the individual needs of each child. At the emergent reader level, many of the guided reading books contain just a few words on each page, have pictures that match the text, contain fewer sentences, use simple language patterns, and have many easy sight words. Gradually, these reading supports decrease.
Writing Children will have numerous opportunities to practice writing in the classroom. This further reinforces what they have learned in shared and guided reading. They are using the skills of reading to produce writing (sounding out words, sight words, and reading what they have written). Examples of how writing is used in the classroom: Guided writing, Quick writes, Class Books, Journals
D.L.P DLP (daily language practice): punctuation at the end of the sentences capitalization of initial sentence words, I, and names use of quotation marks and commas

Spelling We will soon begin a more formal spelling program. Since the purpose of learning to spell is to assist in communication, spelling is used within a context. Therefore, tests are not administered as lists. Spelling patterns have been taught (in Read Well and Write Well) and extended. The use of these words in writing, and the 100 words for first grade, is the skill to be accomplished. Fridays, a short Dictation Story will be given sentence by sentence. The children write each sentence the best way they can.

Coloring was completed quickly and not neatly. One or two colors were used. The quality of work was unsatisfactory.
