My students struggled the most last year in meeting the required reading standards. My principal wasn't too rough on me but I feel it will be different if our kids aren't as up to par next year. I know I should have done reading groups more but it was so hard with rarely having an assistant and watching all of my other kids. I feel like I used the time I did have for reading groups wisely. By the end of the year my kids had at least 60 sight words that they were pretty solid on. I just had so many kids who just were so far behind from the beginning and never really caught on. I'm curious to know some of your "teaching reading" advice or tips. Thanks!
