Guided Reading Groups can be very powerful in helping students make shifts in their reading processing and skills. This workshop will focus on Kindergarten through Second Grade reading levels and will help participants learn how to maximize these 15-20 minute groups through targeting planning, time management, organization, effective assessment and decision-making, and powerful, focused teaching. Participants will view and analyze videos, and will receive ideas and resources to use immediately in their small group instruction.

This workshop will include:

  • Book/text selection to support students’ instructional needs

  • Book/text introductions to foster independent first reads

  • Word work and decoding to support word-solving

  • Teaching for fluency

  • Teaching for strategies

  • Managing small groups
