Terri Dunkleberger: Guided Reading

Guided reading fits the book to the child not the child to the book.

There are seven reading strategies that are taught:

1 Look at the pictures
2 Sound it out
3 Look for chunks
4 Skip the word
5 Go back
6 Does it make sense?
7 Ask someone for help
Students should read for fifteen minutes a night.After  they  have read their books  they should  write down the titles of the books that they read  in their homework folders.I will check these each morning.
