Just wondering how others teach guided reading in year 1. I've only observed a few guided reading sessions and not sure how to make them more exciting! I normally ask chn to read their previous guided reading books (which are sent home) and observe them reading this and make notes. I then introduce the new books, we look at the cover, blurb pictures and talk about the book. I then write some tricky words from the book and we read them together before children start reading their own books whilst I make notes. I just think my sessions are a bit boring.
