It cannot be easy to focus on the fiction of a book when there is so much going on in the real world. Sometimes we need to read something for study or work. It's hard to stay focused and engaged, the focus is lost after just a few paragraphs.
Guided reading is, without a doubt, my favorite way to learn to read. My students love reading with guidance, and I see improvements in their reading skills. They were always delighted when I called them to my reading table.
