Dubbed the best lesson by a lot of the children, guided reading is a very special time of our week. Named after famous authors, the children are set off to do a variety of activities in their groups to help them with their reading skills. We have children completing reading plus, comprehension activity cards, spelling jobs and free readers. There is also at least 1 group reading our whole class book, holes, with a member of staff.
Each lesson we change who is doing what and sometimes some of the groups are allocated free choice seating. This is where they can sit and relax around some of our cushioned areas in our classroom. Soothing music and dimmed lights helps the children to relax and concentrate.
