IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM GUIDED READING?
Yes. Strategy groups rely on teaching your students a reading strategy that they can and will use while independently reading. This type of grouping is not strictly confined to the student’s reading level. Strategy groupings should be flexible so that we can get far, far away from kids who identify as a level, such as “I’m in the purple reading group” or “I am supposed to read level M books.”

Strategy groups rely on you knowing what your individual students need to work on. Do you have a few students who read like robots? Let’s work on it together in a strategy group. Do you have a group of students who struggle identifying the main idea of a text? Let’s work on it in a strategy group. Do you have students who are ready to start describing theme? Let’s work on it in a strategy group.

HOW DO I USE THIS?
Strategy groups work well in all classroom settings. A best practice that all classroom teachers should employ is frequently checking in and conferring with students. When you confer with your students during reading, you see what reading skills and strategies they have mastered and what strategies they need help with. In my classroom, I teach a group lesson everyday. For two days of the week, I confer with students after the group lesson. While conferring, I check in with students to see where they are in their learning. I take notes of the types of instruction each student needs next. I use this information to form my next strategy groups. Overall, I am flexible. On some weeks, I spend more time on conferring and some weeks I spend more time on strategy groups.

One incredible feature of the included reading strategy passages is that the discussion prompts are all included. Everything is print and go! If you have skilled reading volunteers or aides in your classroom, they can easily run these groups while you are working with other students.

WHAT GRADE LEVEL IS THIS FOR?
The content is most appropriate for grades 2-4. However, you may have students in other grade levels that need lessons in this area. There are three text level options included in this product.
LEVEL 1 passages (denoted in the lower right hand corner of the passage with ❍) are recommended for 1st grade or lower level 2nd/3rd grade students. The Lexile range is 400-500L.
LEVEL 2 passages (denoted with ❍ ❍) are recommended for high 1st graders, students on grade level in 2nd/3rd grade, and low 4th graders. The Lexile range is 500-700L.
LEVEL 3 passages (denoted with ❍ ❍ ❍) are recommended for high 2nd/3rd graders, or 4th/5th graders. The Lexile range is 800-1000L.
