Goal of Guided Reading? The ultimate goal in guided reading is to help children learn how to use independent reading strategies successfully. Fountas & Pinnell, Guided Reading
What is Guided Reading? Guided reading is teacher-supported reading of the text that are on the children’s instructional level. It is done in small groups of children (4-6) who share common instructional needs and reading abilities. Texts are teacher selected. Each child hold his/her own copy of the text. The teacher acts as a guide. The students are primarily responsible for the reading. During guided reading the teacher introduces the text, observes the students and oversees retelling.
Why Do We Use Guided Reading? To improve fluency. To make instruction more personalized. Guided reading enables children to develop and use strategies of an independent reader. It allows children to gain confidence in their ability to read on their own. It allows for close observation of each student while reading.
What instructional resources do you need? A designated place where the teacher can monitor the group. Multiple copies of the book. A clipboard or notepad to record observations. Various teaching tools (chart paper, white boards, paper, etc.)
How do you organize your students for a guided reading lesson? Students and teacher are seated at table together so teachers can easily hear all students read. Establish groups of 6-8 students who are reading at similar levels. Adjust groups OFTEN !
