This approach respects the belief that every child is capable of learning to read and recognizes that children learn to read at varying rates of development. WHY should I use guided reading in my classroom? Guided reading is a key part of a balanced reading framework and an essential element of a successful reading workshop.
PreA and Emergent are our earliest readers at a level A through level 4. Although the strategies and skills will appear to best fit kinder and first grade, these lesson plans can also be used for our ELL students who are new to the English language.
The PreA lesson framework is for students who know fewer than 40 upper and lowercase letters and hear few sounds. These students, more than likely, also lack early concepts of print left to right directionality, one to one matching, and differentiating between a letter and a word.
The PreA framework consists of 4 components: Lessons at PreA should be minutes in length and contain one activity from all four components.
PreA lessons are most effective when conducted multiple times a week. To effectively and efficiently meet the needs of the students in a quick 20 minute lesson you will want to have materials prepared and easily accessible.
The following materials are helpful for PreA lesson: PreA lessons can be discontinued when students can write their name without a model, identify 40 upper and lowercase letters by name, hear at least 5 sounds, and consistently track print left to right.
They will then move into the emergent stage, levels Guided reading lessons at the emergent stage focus on teaching skills and strategies. A strategy is a behavior or thought process a reader uses to construct meaning especially when the reader is confused.
A skill is an item of information, such as letter sounds, endings, or vowel combinations. These skills are important and need to be taught, but they are useless if the student does not have the necessary strategies to use the skills.
Therefore, we need to use other types of assessments in an effort to more effectively group them. Emergent readers have a 20 minute, 2 day lesson plan. Day 1 consists of sight word review and work, introduction to a new leveled book, and word study.
Day 2 has a similar structure beginning with word study. Then students reread the book from day 1 and instead of word study at the end of the lesson, students participate in guided writing.
Materials to conduct emergent lessons are similar to PreA with the exception of the name plates. In addition to the materials in the PreA kit you will want to add sound box templates for working with words and high frequency word checklists for teacher use.
Over the years, guided reading has been modified by teachers to meet their teaching styles, schedules, and routines.
Jan Richardson recognizes that all schools are different and kids need different things. Therefore, I encourage you to investigate the use of her lesson plans during guided reading with your students!

I am honored to join in the Summer book study on The Next Step in Guided Reading by Jan Richardson. I am hosting chapter 5 Transitional Guided . Guided Writing/Word Study Each guided reading lesson incorporates guided writing and word study. Jan requires students to write a dictated sentence about what they read, which increases comprehension and also ensures that students are writing using pertinent sight words and phonics rules.
