Bring the Love of Reading to 4th Grade with Guided Reading Sets!

The cost of 2 sets of guided reading books from AKJ Educational Services is $525, including shipping and <a target="new" href="" onclick="g_openWindow('', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Do you remember sitting around a small table reading aloud together with classmates, or dreading the moment when you might have to read aloud in your small group? Or were you the kid who read through the whole story quickly and twiddled your thumbs in boredom, desperate for a great text to challenge and inspire you? Well, Guided Reading is a totally different experience! We still gather in small groups, but this time, the texts are carefully chosen to be accessible to the students. Students should be able to read the texts on their own with the support of the teacher. There are several guided reading groups and each group has it's own text. So the higher groups are not just moving through the textbook at a faster pace, they are reading more complex material! The lower groups are not having to struggle to frustration with the textbook, moving painfully slowly through it, they have books that are challenging them at their own level so that they can grow as readers instead of shutting down! The problem is that we need good sets of leveled texts to use for these groups. Texts that come from many genres and present different kinds of reading challenges and require different sorts of reading strategies. With the books included in this order, my fourth grade students will experience reading instruction that is exciting, because the texts are high-quality, and that is directed at their specific strengths and challenges related to reading because the books will be at the appropriate level for them. This combination will increase their excitement about reading and build their reading skills at the same time! Help bring the love and excitement of reading to our 4th grade classroom through supporting the purchase of these guided reading texts!
