Guided Reading in Kindergarten:

Guided Reading in Kindergarten During shared reading in the kindergarten classroom, teachers guide the entire class through stories with a high level of support.  It is considered guided reading at this level.

Slide 2:

Guided reading has many of the same components as shared reading.  However,  it is conducted with a smaller number of students and focuses more on the individual reading needs of each child.

Slide 3:

During guided reading, teachers work with students at their instructional level to guide them in using the context, visual, and structure cues within stories to generate meaning.

Slide 4:

By using instructional level texts that gradually increase in difficulty, students apply strategies in context and feel successful!

Below Level (example)::

Below Level (example): Find letters in the text that they are currently working on. Practice tracking the words from left to right. Practice using the book from the front to the back. Read the first page alone, then have them read with you chorally while tracking the words.

On Level (example)::

On Level (example): Find sight words being worked on. (I, see) Practice tracking the words left to right. Play games to help remember the sight words. Read together chorally, repeat alone. Identify words with beginning sounds being worked on.
