Guided Reading at Shrevewood

Guided reading is an important part of the reading workshop. In guided reading, teachers guide students and provide support as needed. In guided reading, teachers form groups to address the needs of readers in the class, meeting more frequently with students who need more support. Similar to independent reading, each student reads his or her copy of the text from beginning to end. Groups are adjusted based on the progress of each student. 

Guided reading lessons follow this basic structure. 

  • Book introduction: Provide a book introduction to support the construction of meaning prior to the students reading the text. 
  • Students read text: Each student reads his or her own copy of the text. Teachers listen and provide support as needed. 
  • Engage in discussion: The short discussion after a guided reading lesson is an authentic exchange of ideas. 
  • Teaching point: This is a focused piece of instruction based on the needs of the group. 
  • Word study: A short time can be spent on word work related to the text or student needs.

Readers are dynamic, guided reading groups are flexible, and text levels are approximate. A reading level is a tool for teachers; it is not a label that we assign.

Kiss & Ride


Most elementary schools in Fairfax County have established an area called the Kiss & Ride, which is designed as a safe place for adults in private vehicles to load and unload children. The Kiss & Ride is separate from the school bus area, which helps schools to avoid problems associated with cars passing buses, or cars parking in bus only zones and fire lanes. It also establishes a pedestrian traffic pattern to keep children safe. Our hope is that if all drivers cooperate with guidelines, we will be able to provide an efficient and safe transfer of children. To ensure safety for everyone, observe the following rules when loading and unloading children:

  • All cars must follow the designated route for Kiss & Ride. See map below for further details.
  • You must display your Kiss & Ride number that you are assigned in your windshield EVERY DAY at pick up.
  • Pull forward as far as possible into four drop off zones before loading or unloading.
  • Load and unload in the Kiss & Ride area only.
  • Load and unload from the passenger side of the car only.
  • Keep “good-byes” brief.
  • Remain in the driver’s seat. (Staff members can assist with car doors.)
  • Do not pass other cars that are loading or unloading unless directed to do so.
  • Do not park in the Kiss & Ride lane and leave your car unattended.
  • Do not park in the parking lot to load or unload children.
  • All students must wear seatbelts and/or be in a carseat if appropriate. Exit Kiss & Ride promptly after loading or unloading children.
  • As designated by Virginia Law, Shrevewood parking lot is a hands-free cell phone zone.
