Guided Reading with Jane Farrall - SideShare

Jane Farrall has a clear, simple and succinct slideshow on guided reading (LINK HERE) up on Slideshare. I recommend teachers, parents, and speech therapists of learners who speak as well as learners that cannot take a look at these practical suggestions for sharing books. 

  • Starting with purposes for reading, "Read so that you can..."
  • Types of guided reading
  • Reading follow-ups
  • And 5 parts of guided reading.

She makes a very clear case for providing aided language displays to talk to and with learners, in general as well as in book reading.

Instead of a choice board for identifying nouns from a book, such as the Very Hungry Caterpillar (first image), Farrall provides the following aided language display for books (second image):

For all of you SymbolStix users out there, here is the same board created in TouchChat.

I recommend Jane Farrall's slideshow, Connect2Literacy! (LINK to the slideshow, HERE)
