Guided Reading

Using worksheets for Guided Reading
If you're already planning for the next school year, these worksheets could be useful to set reading objectives right from the start. At the beginning, I use this worksheet during guided reading for fiction stories and this one for nonfiction books or articles. I recommend to use them in small groups, but it could also be used as a whole class if you have available  Either helps students to practice their decoding and fluency skills, and set their minds into reading comprehension. A few sessions of doing this activity together helps the teacher to set reading goals for each group as well as individual learners. As they familiarize themselves  with the worksheet and read more independently they become an independent activity.
