This one is a listener request! Thank you for your suggestion Emily!
If you’re an elementary school teacher, you’ve likely experienced having a class with students who are on all different reading levels. This makes it really challenging to create a guided reading scheduling. Have you ever tried incorporating reading conferences to fill the gaps?
I first discovered the magic of reading conferences while teaching second grade and never looked back. With short and effective reading conferences, you can get to the objective of a lesson way quicker than in a traditional reading group. The best part is that it’s a great time to get to know your students on a more personal level.
In this episode I share:
What a reading conference is and why they are so beneficial
A simple reading conference framework that you can use for all of your students
How to know when you no longer need to listen to your students read aloud and what to work on instead
The appropriate length of a reading conference
