How often to meet with guided reading groups?

by Penny
(Ponte Vedra FL USA)

I am a K teacher who has 19 students.

I have 4 guided reading groups.

This year, I decided to stop frustrating myself and the kiddies and I now meet with each group weekly, but for 20-30 min.

I feel like I am more successful at teaching to their point of need in this longer time frame, instead of 10 min. sessions.

However, I have the problem of the other groups working independently.

They have leveled books to read when they are finished.

I try to avoid so many products and leave room for creativity.

What are many of you finding the most effective?

Meeting with every child each day or meeting with groups weekly? Any ideas?

Thanks!

The Chinese inventions were actually fascinating things. They invented porcelain, fishing nets, crossbows, but I think the most fascinating invention was obviously the fireworks and crackers. The patterns they create with the gun powder are so something fabulous and exciting. ionic air purifier

I think it is better to continue with the pattern you are now following. Meeting the group would be more productive and time saving, as meeting each child in person would lose more time, even though it may turn out more effective. managed IT services

guided reading
by: Anonymous

I have my class organized into centers. I have center time three times a week so I am able to meet with all of my groups 3 times a week. (We have early out day on Monday and free choice centers on Friday so I don't do guided reading on these days) Center time is 40 minutes. I have four groups so I meet with each for 10 minutes. I have 24 students so there are 6 students in each group. I have parent volunteers help with other centers while I do guided reading. In a half day kindergarten program this is as much as I have been able to have time to guided reading.

guided reading
by: Anonymous

This is the first year that I am actually finding time to meet with my groups weekly. The other students do centers at this time. They do their best to turn their voices to a whisper.

I am wondering what kind of activities do you do at your reading groups. How do you know what level they are? Do you do a DRA? If so how often?

I need a way to track my reading group progress and a nice format to write my lessons if anyone can share it would be appreciated.
