There are many tools to use to help plan for explicit guided reading groups in K-3. Included are sample lesson plans for a 3-4 day rotation, examples of how to plan for reading and writing, possible outcomes for your groups in all 5 components of a balanced literacy program and more. Great for new teachers to give ideas for time needed for each component of small group and how one day leads to another. I've used these for several trainings with new teachers or teachers new to explicit small group instruction. I know you'll find these things very helpful to plan your small groups with greater ease and confidence.
