2012 2013 reading guidelines

  1. 1. Walker Elementary School
  2. 2. TreasuresTreasures is a resource that can and should be supplemented.If students and teachers are only reading or using books from Treasures it is not enough.Treasures is a beginning and a guide but not the end of instruction.
  3. 3. Student Reading TimeInstructional time should be spent with kids actually reading at a much higher volume than anything else (teacher talk, worksheets, etc)Across the day, all students should spend at least 45-minutes reading texts with 96% accuracy, fluency and comprehension
  4. 4. When Planning ReadingInstruction…Refer to the Curriculum GuideRefer to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)Refer to GLE’s – ONLY Grades 2-5 this year*Gather other books available to students at various levels that connect to the unit and learning targets in a purposeful way
  5. 5. Daily Reading ActivitiesStudents must talk and write about what they read daily.Books about the same topic should be recommended and provided.All students should discuss and write responses that directly link to the text.If students have spent time writing about their favorite part of the text, this might be a good place to transition to writing that is directly related to what was read in the text.
  6. 6. Writing Instruction45 minutes daily – writing workshopWriting to show learning should be integrated daily into all content areas.
  7. 7. Read AloudsRead alouds at every grade are important and should occur daily in all content.When choosing books to read to students, books should be rich in vocabulary and should be at least two levels higher than what the students can read independently.Read aloud texts should connect to the curriculum in some way.
  8. 8. Quarterly AssessmentsGrades K-2 MacMillan McGraw Hill (MMH) BenchmarksGrades 3-5 SRI
