Are you having to do online learning?  Online guided reading could possibly be one of the most difficult parts of teaching online there is.  Check out some websites and tips to help you plan for online guided reading!

Have you been thrown into teaching on-line? I haven’t this year- YET! It could easily come and I want to be prepared! I think teaching online guided reading will be one of the most difficult areas to teach. I mean- I’ve got to teach these first graders HOW to read! It’s such a huge responsibility! Hopefully, if you are teaching online (or could be soon), I can help you with some solutions!

Schools everywhere are having to switch to online learning because of the Coronavirus. It’s nearly impossible for teachers to plan and teach to the best of their abilities. But, we are TEACHERS! So, of course, we always rise through all of the tough times!

Using Apps and Technology for Guided Reading

While in class, I am trying to use more technology than I ever have with my first graders. If I can get them familiar with all the things that I plan to use during guided reading, it will make the process SO much easier!

Online Books

We use Raz-Kids at school and this is definitely going to be one of my go-to’s if we go virtual! I could share my screen with students as we read the book together.

I’ve also heard that Pioneer Valley has some great online options. I haven’t check them out yet but I do love their books in general.

Word Work

For the word work portion, I’ve been busy creating Word Work BOOM decks that mirror the skills in The Ultimate Guided Reading Toolkit. Each deck has 30 cards, so my plan is to do about 10 cards together in our groups and then they finish the deck on their own. To learn more about BOOM decks, check out this blogpost!

Online Guided Reading can be difficult to do with your kindergarten, first grade, or second grade students.  These word work Boom cards make part of the guided reading lesson fun and effective.  Check them out here!

Sight Word Books

I plan to start using my Seesaw Sight Word Books with my students at the beginning of the year (whether in class or online).  These will help students with sight words as well as basic strategies (one to one matching, self-monitoring).  I love that the students can record themselves reading these books!  Try my Sight Word A Book for FREE!

These Seesaw Sight Word books are perfect for the kindergarten or first grade student!  Students write in the missing sight word and record themselves reading each page.  These are also great for online guided reading!

Making a Plan

The best thing we can all do is to make a plan (just in case)! Good luck with your teaching whether you are doing in class guided reading or online guided reading!
