2. Prepare for Conference

4. Reinforce and Teach

- What will we teach this child?

-Focus on only one strategy so the student doesn’t become overwhelmed.

5. Practice the Strategy.

- Observe him or her practice.

Slide10 l.jpg

6. Plan

- “Does the child need more time to focus on the strategy?”

- “Is the student ready to move on to another area?”

7. Encourage

- “You’re doing so well, look at the progress you’ve made.”

Teaching each strategy l.jpg
Teaching Each Strategy

  • Have student write the strategy on a card and post it on the Café Menu.

  • The students are more likely to use them if they are the ones doing the work.

  • The student who post the card becomes an expert on that strategy (another teacher within the room).

Selecting books l.jpg
Selecting Books

  • Students need to be taught how to self-select appropriate books for independent practice.

  • The purpose of picking a book is like picking the proper pair of shoes for the occasion.

Inference l.jpg

  • (Kid’s term) Reading Between the Lines

  • Take the clues and try to figure out what is happening in the statement.


    ■ As we read the story together, we stop to check for understanding, write a sentence about what we read.

    At the end of the story, go back over sentences, get rid of any unnecessary parts and write it in paragraph form.

Expanded vocabulary l.jpg
Expanded Vocabulary

  • During a read-aloud, stop and talk about the meaning of an unknown word. Once the meaning is clear have students turn to their buddy and each use the word in a sentence. (have students begin to use the word right from the beginning)

  • Tune in to three or four words from the word collector each day. (While in line for lunch or recess have students create sentences using the word.)
