Now you will be able to participate in the Guided Reading initiative. Pre K- 2nd grade classroom teachers attended a day long session. You will receive the highlights.

  • Guided reading is one component of the shared reading block during which the teacher provides support for small, flexible groups of beginning readers. The teacher helps students learn to use reading strategies, such as context clues, letter and sound knowledge, and syntax or word structure, as they read a text or book that is unfamiliar to them.
  • The goal of guided reading is for students to use these strategies independently on their way to becoming fluent, skilled readers.
