Guided Reading Passages: A Focus on Reading Strategies

$13.00

Are you looking to have students MASTER Reading Strategies? Guided Reading Groups are your answer!

Guided Reading Groups are where the teacher pulls leveled reading groups to work on a standard. Passages are leveled to match the student’s instructional reading level.

The Purpose of this Resource

This resource is intended to be used after Reading Strategies have been taught. This resource trains students how to use Reading Strategies so that they become a natural part of the student’s reading process. Passages are leveled so that they can be given at an instructional level (not independent). Students access increasingly challenging texts and gain understanding and fluency with the teacher’s help. Teachers guide students, scaffold and gradually promote independence through the text.
