My students LOVE these reading strategy songs! It helps them remember 6 decoding strategies. When they get stuck on a word, they know they can try Chunky Monkey, Lips the Fish, Skippy Frog, Flippy Dolphin, Stretchy Snake or Eagle Eye to help them figure it out. I love using this for guided reading as well as whole-group instruction. This is part of my reading strategies bundle. #readingstrategies #decodingstrategies #guidedreading #firstgradereading by mollie

The goal of close reading is to gradually release responsibility to students, a shift from the teacher modeling close reading strategies to students employing strategies independently. The role of the teacher is to make these strategies visible to students through thinking aloud, modeling, and posting anchor charts for reference. In this article are some strategies that set the stage for students to interact with a text through an independent analysis and group discussion with peers. by graciela

Amazing! Kindergarten Guided Reading - After watching this video, it's obvious that she has done a lot of prep work before video taping this group. The students know her cute little songs and sayings. She is a Kindergarten teacher, but these kids have some pretty intense vocabulary going on in their guided reading group. Great video! by marquita
