|Kindergarten Guided Reading|
Do you ever wonder what other teacher’s guided reading plans look like? Ever think you would like to change up and improve on yours, but not sure how? Jen, over at The Teacher’s Cauldron, is having a linky party that will help you out!
It seems like every year I am tinkering with my lesson plan forms. I am always trying to improve it and make it work better for me. I feel very constricted with my 30 minute time frame and trying to get EVERYTHING covered that my struggling readers are missing.
|First Grade Guided Reading|
I used the big lesson plan book that the school provided for years and years. Then I tried several times to move to planning on the computer. But it just wasn’t working for me. So I would go back to the good ole standby that I’ve always used.
But this year I think I have finally found something that will work for me! I am using a modified version of Jan Richardson’s The Next Step in Guided Reading with some 4 BLocks flavor thrown in!
When I taught in the classroom, I absolutely loved the 4 Blocks framework. Once our whole building was using 4 Blocks our state test scores took off and we won lots of awards. But then I moved out of the classroom and needed to modify things a bit to fit the time frame and the kids I was now servicing. Combining these two is finally going to allow me to do what I feel I need to do.
|Second Grade Guided Reading|
This form allows me to cover phonemic awareness/phonics and comprehension by giving them 2 full time slots per week. Tuesday/Wednesday will be more like a regular guided reading lesson plan and then on Fridays most students will be reading books on their independent level and conferencing/running records with me.
