I hate doing guided reading. I don't feel that there is much teaching and learning happening, and do it because I have to tick the box. My issues are: 1) my noisy class when I am working with a group (never had this problem with my previous class) 2) an independent activity that is more than just a filler activity to keep the class busy while I am working with a group, and does not require marking 3) trying to assess and scribble something on my assessment records while at the same time teaching and listening and managing the behaviour of the other children 4) finding a scheme that actually works Any ideas? Suggestions? Teachers who feel the same? Teachers who love GR?
