Guided reading is a major part of a balanced literacy program in our classroom. During guided reading students read as the teacher guides them through the story. Daily reading at home will be an important part of your child's second grade reading program. Every minute your child spends with a book brings him or her closer to becoming a fluent reader. When you child reads to you, ask them questions (Who, What, Where, When, and Why) about what they are reading.
We are doing the Daily Five in Reading. Everyday we are Reading to Self, Reading to Someone, Word Work, Working on Writing, and Listening to Reading.
