Guided reading groups are so important for lower and upper elementary grades. That’s why I’m especially excited to announce my first podcast guest, Aylin Claahsen. Aylin is a certified reading specialist, literacy consultant and curriculum designer who loves sharing literacy tips. Specializing in Kindergarten-5th Grade, she can be found sharing literacy tips on her blog or social media at Learning to the Core.
Aylin has a huge passion for Guided Reading as she’s seen the impact it has on readers of all ability levels. Writing engaging passages is one way that Aylin gets to connect with students and teachers all around the world. She believes that building confidence in readers is one of the most important things teachers can do.
I know I wish I had her suggestions for how to organize groups before, during, and after they read! Whether you’re just getting started or working on middle of the year assessments, you’ll benefit from her tips and tricks! (she’ll even give fun ways to use those Target dollar spot items to spice up guided reading).
In this episode we discuss:
What guided reading is and why it’s so important
How to create leveled reading groups
Steps to maximize the effectiveness of guided reading groups
Tips for getting students involved
Strategies for teaching guided reading virtually
