    I am looking for some ideas here. This year my district would like us to try using guided reading in our Learning Support classrooms with Kindergarten to grade 3 MR, AU, LD and ADD children. I am a little nervous giving up the reading program we have used forever to do this! Has anyone ever done guided reading in a Spec Ed classroom?? If so, any suggestions or things I need to do to get ready to incorporate this new approach?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.:)

    Hi!

    I am a Kindergarten teacher that fuses with the K/1 VE room. I love it. I teach guided reading to all of the students.

    There are some things you'll need:

    * a table that can hold 3 - 5 kids
    * leveled books
    * activities for the "other children" to work on while you're teaching

    I wrote an article about guided reading in Kindergarten. PM me if you're interested in it.

    The one thing to remember is that you CAN do GR with ESE students, and it really does WORK.

    Good luck!

    Kelly :)

    I do guided reading daily in a self contained K-5 class. I have a wonderful assistant who teaches one group while I do another one. I use guided reading books culled from our science and reading series. I just shorten the time period and also include supplemental activities in every lesson (something they can also do as a center after I teach them how to do it). The rest of the kids have silent reading, center activities, or computer work during guided reading. The key is to keep everyone occupied and busy.
