Guided reading is a method of teaching reading, where students read books with about 90 to 94 percent accuracy. This amount of uncertainty, when done with a supportive instructor, offers enough challenge that students remain engaged, and enough success that students remain confident. Guided reading allows students to start to read real stories almost immediately.
The 120 guided reader stories in the complete Happy Cheetah program begin with simple words and short sentences, all carefully formatted for maximum clarity. Illustrations support the text. (It’s not cheating to allow a student to look at the pictures! Good readers use all the clues they can to figure out the meaning.)
As students progress, the stories gradually lengthen, as they increase in complexity, introduce new vocabulary, and explore different genres.
No sounding out, no guessing. Just capable reading with some accurate predicting for less familiar words.
