Guided Reading

Guided Reading allows the teacher to work with small groups, using levelled books to enhance their reading.

Purposes of Guided Reading

  • To allow students to be exposed to a range of print materials (eg. fiction, non-fiction, chants, rhymes).
  • To teach comprehension and contextual word recognition strategies
  • To emphasize reading as a problem solving activity and to focus students on self-monitoring
  • To move children progressively from easy to harder reading materials (eg. Permit students to read at their Instructional Reading Levels as they develop competence as readers).
