Shared and Guided Reading flip books with day to day lessons on how to model strategies and teach skills students need to become proficient readers.
Shared Reading Coaching Tool Flip Book:
I copied this booklet on card stock and then bound it together. I used it during shared reading time with my class to guide me on how to model strategies and skills students need to become proficient readers. It gives day by day instruction on what to say and do before, during and after reading fiction or nonfiction text. Children are taught the reading process systematically and explicitly on how to be readers and writers themselves. There are also extension activities provided.
Guided Reading Coaching Tool Flip Book:
I copied this booklet on different colored card stock (each page should be a different color, you will end up with 2 pages the same colored once you have cut them.). Cut the pages in half and then put the pages together alternating the colors, then repeating the colors (you should have 10 pages altogether). Bind the pages together so pages flip up.
This tool gives you guidance on how to guide students with reading strategies and skills to become proficient independent readers. It gives instruction on what to say and do when teaching the reading strategies of directionality, picture clues, one-to-one correspondence, fluency, high frequency words, decoding, knowledge and experience, and comprehension. With facilitation from the teacher students are challenged and learn to problem solve to become a fluent reader.
Reading Coaching Tool Poster and Student Bookmarks:
These reading strategies tools gives students a picture and word clue to help them with reading and comprehension of a text. Students are able to look at the chart and try a certain strategy if them become stuck on a word or are not understanding their text. Students must try to work out their problem using the chart before asking for assistance.
In my classroom I copied the poster on cardstock and laminated it. I made a bookmark for each student on cardstock (2 bookmarks on each page) and then laminated each one. My students kept these bookmarks in their reading bins and would bring them to their guided reading groups.
