Reading Kits

Hey all!
I'm here to tell you a little bit about Reading Kits!

guided reading for kindergarten

Reading Kits are a fun way to incorporate repeated practice in skills that are at each student's Guided Reading Level.  Each level will contain task cards that address targeted skills and tasks that are specifically designed to support students at their reading level and assist them in moving on to the next level.

These Reading Kits are designed to work alongside my Guided Reading Curriculum. The skills and word work practice in each leveled set is specifically made to work alongside each level in my curriculum. 

These versatile reading kits can be used in a variety of ways in your classroom. Use them as a center activity, with teacher support as an intervention, as an early finisher task, or even in your Guided Reading groups… the possibilities are endless!

A little bit about setup.... it's seriously easy. I wanted to make sure that these kits were something you could prep quickly and put to use right away.

My kits are organized using these rainbow containers from The Container Store.  You could also store the materials in manila envelopes if you don't want to purchase an organizer case.

 Setup is as easy as copying and taping in the container labels, copying, cutting and putting the task cards on a ring clip, and copying and stapling the student Tracker booklets. That's it!

Each kit contains 2 different sets of 24 task cards per level.... 48 in all. The tasks and recording booklets are specific to each reading level and can be used for independent or partner work, centers, or in your small groups.  The recording booklets and tasks will change and progress with each level.
