This packet includes a separate Parent Handout for each Guided Reading Level from A - L. Perfect to share at Meet the Teacher Night, Back to School Night or Parent Teacher Conferences.
I find that sending a handout home in my Guided Reading bags each time a child transitions to a new reading level helps parents more effectively support their child's learning.
Includes ideas for helping students:
-Develop voice to print match
-Use a combination of initial sounds, picture clues and meaning
-Develop sight word knowledge
-Engage in shared writing at home
-Learn to monitor their own reading
-Make connections to stories
-Work with cut-up sentences
-Read smoothly and with expression
-Find interesting details
-Recognize and use word chunks
-Think deeply about informational and literary texts
-Develop a fluent reading style
-Flexibly use word chunks with both long and short vowels
-Go on a "Long Vowel Scavenger Hunt"
-Work with compound words
-Become familiar with more complex text layouts
-Work with contractions
-Break words into syllables
-Ask and answer text-based questions
-Participate in rich discussions about books
-Use closed captioning to develop reading skills
I also use many of these ideas in guided reading groups and literacy centers on a regular basis.
I hope you find these helpful! Anne
