    Guided reading is ‘small-group reading instruction designed to provide differentiated teaching that supports students in developing reading proficiency’. The small group model allows students to be taught in a way that is intended to be more focused on their specific needs, accelerating their progress.

For the Students:

  • Worksheet for students to answer questions from the story
  • Worksheet to produce questions while reading
  • Worksheet to produce questions after finishing the reading
  • 2 art responses
  • 3 worksheets for students to go beyond the reading to answer questions that require them to share their opinions/thoughts.
  • Duck shape book for students to use in any way you wish. Perhaps to write their own story, a summary of the book, to record rhyming words, vocabulary words, etc. (You decide!)
  • 3 ‘Color and Cut’ pages
  • Suggested extended activities (14 ideas given) – These will help you extend the learning into Science and Social Studies!

All writing pages include dashed lines because this has been designed for 1st – 2nd grades and will allow students to practice correct handwriting.
