Color print and laminate the signs to create a balanced literacy rotation board. Assign each guided reading group a schedule to follow. Model and teach expectations for each literacy rotation. Dr. Jan Richardson suggests that it takes about 6 weeks to fully implement a balanced literacy classroom for Guided Reading. I suggest adding a title to your literacy rotation board, such as "Where are you starting today?" With routines clearly established, you will be able to pull guided reading groups, while the rest of your students are working independently on meaningful literacy work.
