Guided Reading Made Easy: LEVEL A

Guided Reading.

For many teachers, the words make you crazy. (I will admit, I was one of those teachers.)
We never had a set program. We had some PD books, and some random resources that were adopted then dropped, old dusty manuals from the early 90s ...aaaand that was what I was working with. So, Guided Reading in my classroom was always a mismosh of things that I could pull together fast and easy.  One day while scrambling for appropriate activities for my guided reading groups, I knew that something had to give. I had to get organized. 

So here we are.

Your teacher binder is the command center.

This is where all of the Guided Reading planning happens, where all of your lesson notes are stored, and where you can access your Flip Book of student activities to target the skill that you want to, when you need to. Because we all know you have approximately 1.4 seconds from the end of the reading part of your lesson to decide what they need to work on, pull it, and begin.
The Flip Book makes it easy for you to target, pick the activity, and get begin your targeted teaching!
