Reflection: Student Grouping Tier Vocabulary: Choose your words wisely - Section 3: Guided Practice

 

Reflection: Although the mini-lesson is an integral part of our Reader’s Workshop, the Guided Practice, in my opinion, is the most important part of the hour. This is when I get to work with students to really see if they understand the concepts we have been learning and to strengthen their reading skills overall. One of things I do during this time is work one-on-one with my struggling readers. I have short, leveled reading passages that are copied in a binder so they are always ready to use and no prep is necessary. I call a student and introduce the text and listen as they read. The student has his/her own copy in a plastic sleeve that they read from and I have a copy that I take notes on. When they struggle with a word, we stop and try strategies such as segmenting, looking for familiar parts, using context clues, etc. I circle those words on my copy so that we can revisit them after we finish the passage. I also keep track of fluency and ask questions at the end to make sure they comprehended the text. When we finish reading, I give them the copy that my notes are on, with the circled words, and tell them to re-read it to someone at home. I also encourage parents to keep these reading passages in a folder at home as a collection of “just right” texts for their children to use to practice reading fluently. This process only takes about 5-10 minutes so I am able to meet with several students during Guided Practice or a combination of one-on-one students and small groups.
