This year I am so excited to dive into reading groups! I've spent a large part of my summer creating novel study guides that partner with my favorite series... Magic Tree House! Before we start talking all things MTH, I'd like to share three tips for guided reading groups.
1. What if they aren't familiar with the vocabulary?
2. How do I assess their prior knowledge?
3. What do I want my students to know by the end of the lesson?
fluency goal. One student asked me if she could draw her favorite word at the end of the week if she met her fluency goal. I immediately jumped on board with this idea because I could see that she was an artist and that this would help to get her motivated to practice her weekly fluency piece!
Now I am so excited to show you what I have been working on for my guided reading groups this year... Magic Tree House comprehension guides!
purchase the entire set (books 1-25). This is a growing bundle and I am completing quite a few stories a month. The growing bundle is on sale until I have all of the stories in it completed. Another option would be to purchase the smaller bundles, like this one... stories 1-5.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hoped my tips for guided reading helped you! The Owl Teacher has set up a prize pack that you can enter to win as well! Don't forget to check out the other blogs from the fabulous teachers who lined up!
