Hi Bloggy World!
I am struggling. About 1/2 to 2/3 of my class is struggling with reading. I have about 7 students that are really not catching on to reading, and I am worried. These are 2nd graders and they should be able to read. There are about 7-10 students in my class of 23 that are reading under 25 words a minute with a lot of mistakes. I am doing guided reading groups, but I really want to make it meaningful. If you have any suggestions at all please leave a comment or send me an email. My email address is on the side.
Some of the things I am doing are 1st grade approaching level readers for my lowest group, and some regular 1st grade level readers to build confidence. Also, I am practicing sight words, doing word sorts, and some sounding out word activities. I really want all of my students to succeed, and it is very hard when some are not able to read the basic work. My school is lucky enough to be using lexile reading program, and they really enjoy that. I just want to make sure I am doing everything I can for my wonderful little friends.
Thanks in advance for all the wonderful advice I know many of you have. :)
Have a super Saturday! It is so gorgeous out here for middle of November in Minnesota.
