★ Guided Reading Assessment Toolkit for Levels A - T {Printable}

The conundrum is real. . .

We want to get reading groups up and running! But, first we need to know the approximate guided reading levels of each of our students so we can effectively create these groups.

The need for current information continues through the year, as our students grow and learn.

We need a quick, effective way to determine each child's ideal Guided Reading Placement Level.

There are a couple widely-used tools available - but they are both expensive and very time consuming. Using those tools, we sometimes have to complete several running records to find the instructional level of a single student.

It's part of a bigger issue - the struggle to balance having enough data to differentiate effectively while also preserving that precious instructional time!

This Text Level Estimator is fast and effective!

★ It takes a fraction of the time it would take to complete running records on each student.

★ It's available at a fraction of the cost and uses much less paper.

Both reading accuracy and comprehension are considered in determining the student's Initial Placement Level.

Take a look at the preview to see how this works!

I hope you'll join me in advocating to save time while still getting the information we need to provide high-quality small group instruction for our young readers.
