    Description

    COMPLETE reading group lessons that are ready to print and go or assign digitally using Google Classroom. Each lesson includes:

    - WARM UP: Quick tasks that review prior knowledge and introduce the strategy.

    - PRACTICE: A complete high-interest passage (differentiated at three levels) that includes thoughtful prompts for you and the students to discuss, write, think, skim, etc.

    - INDEPENDENT PRACTICE: Send your students off with accountability practice.

    - MISC: Printable anchor charts for every lesson (just print-and-go to fit full size chart paper), conferring note pages, and lesson planning pages are all included.

    EVERYTHING IN HERE IS READY TO GO

    All you need to do is figure out which students would benefit the most from each strategy lesson.

    If you have skilled reading volunteers or aides in your classroom, they can easily run these groups while you are working with other students.

    I am currently working through the units to add the distance learning options that can be assigned using Google Classroom. Check the preview to see which units have already been updated. At the same time as I am working through the distance learning additions, I am adding several new lessons to each unit.

    GROWING BUNDLE?
    In August 2020, I began a major update to this bundle. This update includes 43 new lessons and digital/distance learning options for every lesson. This update ties every strategy group lesson found in this bundle to an optional whole group Interactive Read Aloud lesson for teachers who would like to use both of these products together. Check the preview to see which units have already been updated with the new additional lessons and the digital/distance learning options. This growing bundle update will be completed in spring 2021.

    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 for every lesson/passage 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.

    DOES THIS WORK WITH JENNIFER SERRAVALLO'S READING STRATEGIES?

    Yes! If you are a fan of the reading strategies written by Jennifer Serravallo, then this bundle of activities will be a perfect compliment. The strategies in this bundle work seamlessly with the strategies that Jennifer Serravallo suggests in her (AMAZING) Reading Strategies Book.
