Here are guided reading tips, hints, strategies, activities, and ideas for you to use in your upper elementary classroom. This resource will provide you with tips, hints, strategies, activities and ideas of how to teach guided reading in your classroom. Also included in this document is a Reading Workshop activity and a list to our many reading comprehension guides for novels such as The Kane Chronicles: The Red Pyramid, The Almost True Adventures of Homer P. Figg, Sideways Stories from Wayside School, Sarah, Plain and Tall, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Gentle Ben, Number the Stars, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, and many, many more.

The topics shared in this document include:

-Before reading strategies (K-W-L, word study, vocabulary)

-During reading strategies (comprehension, fluency, predicting, summarizing, connecting, visualizing, clarifying...)

-After reading strategies (literacy centers and activities)


-And how to motivate your students to enjoy reading.

There are also links to activities that we directly use in our classrooms to teach guided reading. We have watched our students' district and state assessment reading scores soar after implementing guided reading and the activities that we use! With this document, it is our intention that you can experience some of the success also.
