Reading, reading, and more reading!

My district uses the Balanced Literacy Framework for reading.  One of my favorite times is when  am able to pull small groups for reading.  Guided reading allows me to work with a small group of students at a specific and with specific skills.  I have four groups with one being a literature circle.  I see each group every day.  Here is an example of how my guided reading baskets look for each student. made these signs to help during my reading lessons.  I laminated these and stuck them to some wide Popsicle sticks.  I use these prompts during whole group lessons or at my guided reading table.  I love them because they are colorful and they catch my student’s attention.  All I have to do is raise it up and they know what I am going to ask of them.  It also gives a description of the important word so that they know what it means.  Click here to check them out!

During guided reading my kids are at centers.  I want them to be aware of what they are doing in each center so I made these easy to use signs that help them remember what they are learning.  I put them in protective sleeves so I can reuse them.  You can write on them and then wipe it off to write the net skill they will learn.

I hope you enjoyed this quick look into my reading time.  

I'd love for you to tell me about your reading time and the great things you do!
