Remember your "Top Ten List" for Guided Reading Instruction

1. Use data for grouping: Isip & running records (DRA/EDL)

2. Tier/level of students must be identified & leveled books are selected for instruction

3. Groups: Ever changing grouping of students. August groups aren’t the same in May.

4. Lesson structure is important!

5. Before Reading – ask probing questions, take a picture walk, intro vocabulary, discuss theme

6. During Reading – ask probing questions

7. After Reading – ask probing questions, open ended comprehension & analysis. Avoid yes/no questions!

8. Do this! whisper reading, echo reading…Don’t do this! round robin reading

9. Time each day and consistency each week needs to be built into daily schedules

10. Engagement – Try a prop: Reading fingers, whisper phones, silly glasses (Especially with the lower grades!)
