I'm excited to continue with the guided reading discussion! Plus I have a FUN teaching tool to share (and a giveaway below--but keep reading!!)
Today I just wanted to share some of the things I use during my guided reading group time. I am in a district that has a Basal, yet we do have the freedom to use it how we wish. I find that some of the stories are good and others are so not. So I mix it in when I can. So with that being said, here are some of the things that I use and how I use them:
~great for comprehension
Leveled Readers- (this came with our reading series)
~read at level text
Magazines (i.e. national geographic)-
I also wanted to share a project I just completed that I plan to use during my guided reading time!! I'm also linking up with 4th Grade Frolics (for my first time!!):
This is an activity that I've wanted to make yet life got in the way :) This is a word family flip book-- my emergent readers will so benefit from this!! Here's how it looks:
Cool right? ;) So you will need a set of word family cards (more info how to get this if you don't want to make it below).
Cut them out and line them up so you can punch holes in the same place... that way you have the letters match up next to the "family"
Binding this would be ideal... yet I decided to try pipe cleaners! It worked great and SO inexpensive! Make a "U" first so that you have a ring shape and the cards turn more easily.
So I don't want this to turn into an advertisement ;) but I do have this for sale in my TpT Store. It's a pretty cool pack that I'm very proud of! It looks like this:
BUT I'm excited to say that I will be giving one away every day this week (for my guided reading week of goodies!) So if you leave a comment below with your email address I will choose someone tonight (10pm centeral time). If you don't win today... come back each day this week!! :) p.s... must be a follower to win!
THANKS for reading!! Leave your guided reading questions below and I'll try and answer them! :)
