You won’t find any boring theories or ideas that don’t actually work in practice. This program is based on best practices in guided reading instruction and literacy development! Implementing Guided Readers at home will ensure exponential growth in your child's reading skills (Results will vary).
YES! When you first log on to Guided Readers, you will want to acclimate yourself to the portal and get used to how the technology works.
We suggest working with your child for one-two session so they understand how to sign on, navigate the platform, and complete the activities.
Once they have an understanding of how the program works, they can work completely independently!
Of course, if parents want to work with his/her child on the lessons, we have provided a Parent Guide for each book on the site to help parents work through the lesson with his/her child and provide discussion prompts to assess their child's comprehension of the story.
YES! Absolutely! If your child was currently in school, these are the types of lessons and activities they would engage in during small group guided reading instruction.
Guided Readers was created BY TEACHERS with over 23 years teaching reading to children. We are experts in understanding how children learn to read and have added all of our knowledge, expertise, and experience within the Guided Readers program to ENSURE that your child not only progresses in their reading development while at home, but will experience exponential growth in their reading abilities. (Results will vary.)
YES! Absolutely! Guided Readers provides books from Levels A - Q to ensure that your children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade can continue their reading instruction at home.
This is a great question. We suggest you ask your child's teacher what level they are currently reading at to give you a baseline on where to have your children begin on Guided Readers.
However, if that is not readily available information you can use these guidelines to help you make an informed decision on where to start your child within the Guided Readers program:
If your child is in Kindergarten and an average reader, we suggest working with books on Levels A - D.
If your child is in Kindergarten and an advanced reader, we suggest working with books on Levels D-H.
If your child is in first grade and an average reader, we suggest working with books from Levels D - I.
Children in first grade are typically expected to exit first grade reading on a Level I.
If your child is in second grade and an average reader, we suggest working with books from Levels I - N.
Children in second grade are typically expected to exit second grade reading on a Level M/N.
If your child is in third grade and an average reader, we suggest working with books from Levels M - Q.
Children in third grade are typically expected to exit third grade reading on a Level Q.
