Guided Reading Resources
This page will provide resources around Guided Reading, one of the parts of a balanced literacy program for teaching literacy.
For more information on Guided Reading click here.
These Guided Reading resources are specifically designed for early readers and writers. Each resource contains a document with 5 guided reading purposes and some supports for these purposes to enable students with complex communication needs to participate in these sessions. The supports are made in Boardmaker but have been saved as PDFs
It is preferable that a student with complex communication needs (CCN) has a comprehensive communication system and doesn't need to have supports like this constructed for different sessions throughout the day. If they don't have a comprehensive communication system, then you can use these supports as a way for them to participate while you work towards a more comprehensive communication system.
An example of a low tech comprehensive communication system is a Pragmatically Organised Dynamic Display (PODD) .
