In my classroom I use this book companion during my Language Arts block. I will always read the book first as a whole group. The objective of the read aloud will change daily. After the read aloud is done, the students will break up into three small groups. Each group is lead by myself and my two instructional assistants. I always lead the group with the reader. It is important to me that my students are being exposed to literature, practicing reading and reading behaviors. On Monday-Wednesday we run three small groups and complete the reader, vocabulary activity and sorting activity. On Thursday, we will complete the sequencing activity whole group. The students who are independent will work by themselves to complete the task using their reader. The others will be provided with support as needed. On Friday, we always complete the assessment as a whole group. I will display the assessment on the elmo and read the questions out loud to the class. The students are responsible for circling their response or to point to their response.
