I have been trying to find a way to record observations during guided reading, but was unsuccessful finding something that worked for me. I decided to make my own! I love this observation sheet because it allows me to write observations for an entire guided reading group over a three day period. This has helped me to minimize extra papers and to find my data much easier!
There is room to include your group's name, week of the meeting, level of the book, and book title.
I included a small box at the top (underneath the headers) for you to write the date of each meeting (for day 1, 2, 3). There is also space for you to include what to focus on for your next meeting.
