Guided Reading Area

Doing Guided Reading is my favourite part of teaching reading.

Behind my table I have this large bulletin board where I put posters I refer to A LOT through out the year. 

The yellow one is one I made to resemble the Shape-Go-Map our district uses to guide students through what they need to be able to remember when retelling a fiction text. What my students last year had the hardest time remembering was stopping to tell me WHO was the story about. They lost some pretty easy points by just starting with "He had a Dog", for example, even though it's the first point of the triangle.

The 8 animal posters I can't remember where I got these from (and would love a link to share with others). These posters are very useful when showing students what skill they need to practice when reading new texts. Right now I'm focusing on "Eagle Eye".

The large and Small Superhero posters are my Superhero versions of Reading Power by Adrienne Gear.  I mostly use reading power doing Guided reading, I feel this skills are mostly relevant here, but I do mini lessons whole class as well.
