This contains a guided reading lesson plan (or whole group) that can be used in any setting. This could also be used for modified literature circles. It includes vocabulary, discussion questions, and a sequencing activity. Many of the discussion questions make students think on a higher level.
I have been teaching for 16 years in third and fourth grade classrooms. My focus has been on reading, and I have received my Master's in Reading. I am now the Reading Specialist, my dream job, in the school where I began my teaching career.
