Watch this simple 3-part guided reading lesson as I work with a rising 1st grader.

With this simplified structure, you don't have to create new activities each lesson. AND yet, you still get a balanced lesson.

Here is the 3-part guided reading lesson format that I used with the 1st grader (and I recommend for all beginners or those struggling):

  1.  Re-Reading for Fluency
  2. Word Work
  3. Guided Reading of a new text
