Please Note**** I put in a few variations of pages in case you don't use reading strategy beanie buddies and want to write in your own etc. ****
The focus of my products has been no-prep lessons to get outdoors and learn the best way kids learn; hands on, exploring and inquiring!
** This one was created for quick and easy planning, less paperwork, all on one page 3-day guided reading lesson plan. **
I was in a mat-leave cover this year until March when I was able to transfer over to a K/1 reading intervention position. I had no experience in this area and my previous guided reading lesson plan templates just weren't working for this focused position!
I looked and looked for a product that would help me ease the paperwork but I just couldn't find anything. I decided to make my own and this is what I came up with. I've had a few co-workers ask where I got it so I thought I'd share it with anyone else who'd like it!
What I put into it and why:
- Main reason; all three days are on ONE page. I had 24 kids/8 reading groups and seeing them all 4 days a week for 20 minutes. I could not spend my time flipping back and forth looking at what we accomplished the day before.
- Day 1/2/3; I colour code the entire page (see picture examples) for what I PLAN on doing with the group. I write the date in AFTER/when I actually see the group. Sometimes group days change, assemblies happen etc. so it is a flexible page. I also colour code with pen on the day of, so I know what I did each day i.e. Day 1 I write in blue pen, day 2 I write in purple pen and then by day 3 I know what we've done on each day.
- I found I was writing and wasting so much time when I was doing similar work with the 24 kids/8 groups I had. So I just wrote down everything I could potentially do and now I just HI-LITE! Much faster.
- Before/During/After reading; these are all standard guided reading tasks to help progress reading. Some weeks I do more than others. Choose what you think works best for the book chosen or where your student's are at.
- Word work section; I always do one task (once in a while 2) from this part to end the lesson. Based on the book and what works best.
- Back page; I use this to record notes from their reading, next steps, and ALWAYS give praise feedback about their reading, whether it was a strategy used, error and correction made etc.
Hope you enjoy this and it eases up your planning like it has for me!!
