Guided reading is a strategy that a teacher uses to help students become great readers. The teacher's role is to provide support to a small group of students by using a variety of reading strategies to guide them to become successful in reading. Books used in guided reading are taken from the Ohio Book room. These books are specifically chosen to address the reading abilities of each child, and are used to increase their reading strategies. These books include both fiction and non-fiction selections that cover a wide variety of topics.
* During this small group work the other children in the room are actively engaged doing independent literacy activities.
A, B, C, D
D, E, F, G, H, I , J
During shared reading, a story is read by the teacher to a whole group of children. The children are engaged in the literature through discussions, predictions, illustrations, and questioning techniques.
During independent reading, children are able to select a text and read silently to themselves for an extended period of time. The child can select books that are “just right” for them. They are able to make connections within the book.
Science & Social Studies
These areas are integrated through literature, writing, math and all content areas. In addition, the students will be participating in many hands-on science experiments to enhance learning.
Some topics include:
Community Helpers Matter
Weather and Seasons Holidays
Plants and Animals Map Skills
Many field trips are planned around our science and social studies themes to provide the children with hands on experiences.
