How often do you meet with your reading groups?
Do you get to each group every day?!
Lowest group - every day
Highest group 2-3 times a week
Other groups (4) are about 3 times a week
Some weeks my groups go quickly and I get a 4th round with my middle groups.
My schedule is very much like Tasha's.
Wow! You guys rock - I don't meet with mine nearly that much!
I meet with the very low 2 times a week (they also see reading specialist 3x/week.), just below grade level 1 time a week (they see reading specialist 2x/week), the on grade level 1 time a week and the high (way above grade level) kids almost never. Those very high kids read with parent chapter book groups 1 time a week, though.
I do read with individual students every day for 5-10 minutes, maybe 5 kids a day. I just walk around during independent reading time and listen to them, give them a compliment and some constructive criticism and that lets me gauge how they're doing.
I have 4 groups and I meet with them everyday (unless we have special assessments or an assembly)for 15-20 min each.
Okay, I am feeling a little better! In years past I have been able to meet with all groups each day. For some reason, I just can't seem to do it this year. I think it is a combo of a larger class and less time set aside for groups.
