Guided Reading lessons with a group
The chapter lengths vary from 400-800 words which makes each chapter about a possible Guided Reading lesson. The follow-up activities provide students with opportunities to revise the text after the lesson and develop those after reading comprehension skills.
Make this your class chapter Book and read a chapter a day. You have two levels to choose from which gives you some options depending on the overall ability of your students.
Once again the follow-up activities provide you with independent work for your class while you are taking guided reading lessons with ability groups.
Whole Class Novel StudyA slightly different emphasis from the previous option (Class Read Aloud) but a more rigorous approach to developing after Reading Comprehension Skills.
If you have used our other resources (Short Stories and Information Reports) you will be familiar with my approach to After Reading Comprehension activities based on Bloom’s Taxonomy.
These activities provide you and your students with high quality after reading independent work activities which are essential for a reading programme that is built around reading rotations (small ability group guided reading lessons).
This does require some set-up if you want to get quality work and strong engagement from your students. I have provided chapter related activities and some which are accumulative. I suggest that students have their own work book or journal where they record the activity and their response each day.
