    How much time do you spend with one reading group?

    I just started guided reading with my kindergarten classes. I right now I have 4 groups in each session and can get to three to four of them in 45 minutes. My students are reading very simple books. We read and do some type of activity based on the story but it is short and sweet.

    Meanwhile my other groups are involved with a variety of activities depending on the day and keep track of their accomplishments through the use of colored sticks they place in a pocket after they have completed an activity.

    This is working well so far.

    As for academic and play centers - I see all centers as academic in kindergarten. Play doh promotes fine motor coordination, arts promote motor skills, creativity etc..
