Guided reading group time is my favorite time of the day because I am able to really hone in on the reading needs of my kiddos. My main goal during reading groups is to give my students feedback to help them grow as readers. Therefore notes are essential. However, lets face it, at times there is not enough time to review our anecdotal notes. So I came up with this grid where I can put down a code to remind me of my students needs! Very easy to review! If there is a strength, I write the code and a plus sign next to it. Hope this helps you as much as it has helped me :) Focusing on one area for the day helped me truly make a note of my students abilities. This is perfect for a 3 group reading groups model.
