Lower Ability Guided Reading

Recommended Posts

Please can anyone help.

I have alower ability group who recognise all single sounds but htey are really struggling to blend them to read simple words. I am was wondering what to do with them during guided reading sessions. My other groups are reading captions and simle books but i am at a bit of a loss as to what to do with my lowers during their ghuided reading sessions

 

Any help would be gratefully received

thanks

They don't need to be having a guided reading session in the classic sense as they cannot decode independently yet. A more appropriate approach would be small group shared reading where the emphasis is still on adult modelling but selecting text that uses the knowledge they have. This is exemplified on a very useful dvd resource for early reading details can be found here

Nothing else to add to what Catma has said really but I was recently on a guided reading course and was told to do 'group reading' with the children not ready to cope with an individual guided reading book. Like Catma said it is like a shared reading session but with a small group of 2-6 children.

I was going to say shared reading as well, modelling how to handle a book etc. Perhaps it might be an idea to go back to basics on their phonics as well? Maybe you could take a look at the Letter and Sounds document for help on blending, I love the 'robot voice' activities- what we do is put a few items in a bag CVC words like cat, hat etc and then get the children to take one out and segment each sound? this will help give them the confidence to segement and blend when reading.

 

There is some very good activities on Espresso to help with this too where they click on each letter and the letter makes that sound and then they find the missing letter in the word. Does that make sense? sorry pregnant brain alert!
