Independent activities during guided reading - Year 1

Discussion in 'Primary' started by wwvirgin, Sep 17, 2008.

  1. I'm in Year 1 and planning the lessons for 'Stories in familiar settings'. My school's policy is to spend the first week doing guided reading around the topic, which is fine, but it leaves me with 2 groups of 8 daily who are without a teacher or LSA.

    What can I get these independent groups to do that is actually worthwhile?



    Thanks in advance!

    Here's some ideas to get you going:
    Some will follow on
    from the text used in the guided session

    <ul style="margin-top:0cm;"><li class="MsoNormal">Phonics activities /
    games<li class="MsoNormal">Puppets/role play to
    re-tell a story<li class="MsoNormal">Sequencing
    activities: pictures, sentences, key events, etc<li class="MsoNormal">Draw characters from
    story<li class="MsoNormal">Rhyming words ?
    finding/matching<li class="MsoNormal">Re-reading of
    familiar texts<li class="MsoNormal">Listening stations /
    story tapes<li class="MsoNormal">Alphabetical ordering
    activities<li class="MsoNormal">Children could read to a partner, independently, to a puppet or
    cuddly toy.<li class="MsoNormal">Illustrations from
    known texts (laminated and children write text)<li class="MsoNormal">Bingo; snap;
    picture/letter match<li class="MsoNormal">Matching pictures and
    text.[/LIST]

    <ul style="margin-top:0cm;"><li class="MsoNormal">Writing table: names,
    lists, key words, favourite food, family members, days of the week, links
    to topic or text for the week; book making (e.g. I like? or I am ?)<li class="MsoNormal">Cut-up sentences from
    the text; children choose their own object/ focus. E.g. Mum is ___ (child
    chooses ?running?) <li class="MsoNormal">Book making based on
    the story read. For example: zig zag books; pictures from the text, either
    in the book or cut-up ready to put in the book; little books with boxes
    for illustrations and lines for writing. <li class="MsoNormal">Art activities
    related to the text. i.e. design a new book cover for the book, make a
    life size picture of a character, draw your favourite scene, make
    plasticine models of characters, make a puppet of a character,
    illustrations for the book, <li class="MsoNormal">Writing a similar
    story on the computer. <li class="MsoNormal">Read a range of other
    books by the same author/ publisher (in pairs, to puppets, etc)<li class="MsoNormal">Cloze activity ?
    missing high frequency words, missing phonemes, missing full stops, etc. <li class="MsoNormal">Simple book review
    (sentence starters and smiley faces to rate the book). <li class="MsoNormal">With support from a
    TA: <li class="MsoNormal">Re-tell the story
    using puppets and props <li class="MsoNormal">Read the story onto
    tape [/LIST]


























     
  4. Weird....don't know what all that at the top of my post is!! I did cut and paste it from word doc though. Am not a KS1 teacher but lit coordinator and we've recently had focus on guided reading.
