Guided Reading

In guided reading at Nether Edge, children use an anthology. These anthologies include a range of texts such as poems, plays, fiction from our literary heritage and are always high quality and vocabulary rich. We teach the children several skills during guided reading sessions, such as retrieving information from the text, clarifying the meaning of new words and inferring how characters may feel.

A big part of our guided reading is learning how to become a fluent reader. To develop children’s fluency our guided reading structure includes plenty of opportunities to annotate texts and understand the meaning of words, as well as reading aloud through echo and choral reading.

Because we teach guided reading every day, children at Nether Edge are immersed in exciting and engaging texts which develop their passion for reading.
