This DIGITAL Reading Groups and Anecdotal Notes Organizer in Google Slides™ is an easy to use template for any reading teacher who manages different guided reading groups. Using this product in Google Drive™will give you the ability to share and collaborate with your Reading Specialist, Interventionists, Special Education Teachers, Gifted and Talented Teachers, and Administration. OR, just use it for your own records and note taking!

Since I first posted this resource I have added grouping templates for writing & spelling/word study groups. I have also added templates in which you can add a text box and type your own title: Ex: Math Groups, Science Groups, etc.

This download comes as two separate links:

1. Directions in Google Slides™:

Step by step directions on how to set this up and start using this organizer are included as a Google Slides™ presentation. Follow the 6 simple steps! An embedded YouTube video is included in which I explain how to use the anecdotal notes page and how you can customize it to fit your needs. READING SPECIALISTS: This particular slide is completely editable. Add/delete anything to make it fit with the information you need to collect.

2. Reading Groups & Notes Organizer in Google Slides™:

This is the main file. Slide #1 contains the "home" slide that displays your reading groups. The default is set to 5 guided reading groups however I provide directions and templates for 2-6 reading groups. Feel free to email me if you have more than 6 groups and I would be happy to create another template for you.

The Reading Groups slide contains 30 movable gray rectangles for 30 student names. Add your student names and delete any extras. Rename the reading group boxes to display the names of your different reading groups. Drag the student movable pieces to their group. These movable pieces are already hyperlinked to take you to that student's notes slide. Click on the link and then you will need to edit the word art text box on each student slide to display their name. (This step will need to be done using a laptop/computer/Chromebook™).

Anecdotal Notes Slides:

These slides are completely editable. A table has already been added that contains columns for "Date" and "Notes". You can add to or delete the table to make these slides fit your needs. Add anecdotal notes that indicate how the child is reading or simply just add their guided reading level.

This download is for a SINGLE classroom use license. You can select multiple licenses at checkout to receive 40% off each additional license!

This product comes as two separate links in a PDF file. First, make sure you are signed into your Google account. Click on the link and you will be prompted to "Make a Copy". Rename the file. It will be sent directly to your Drive!

This will work on Chromebooks™, laptops, computers and iPads®. However, do not use an iPad to set it up.
