    4 Blocks

    The guided reading in 4 Blocks and the guided reading that is discussed by Fountas and Pinnell are two different things. The way I understand it, in 4 Blocks the teacher is not necessarily working with a small group of children reading a book on their instructional level. It is a great way to organize your day to insure that you are getting to all areas of language arts every day, but I still have a 50-60 minute block where I do guided reading as described by F and P. I use the 4 Block guided reading block to teach the comprehension skill from our basal for the week. The Teacher's Guide to Four Blocks is quite helpful.
