These activities should be made and kept together into a Guided Reading Toolkit Container. You will need to purchase a container. PLEASE NOTE: This product needs to be printed on cardstock paper for durability. Many of the pages should also be printed in color and laminated. It is going to take TIME to put it all together as well. But, when it is together- it will save you many, many hours when planning your Guided Reading Lessons.

The activities are correlated with Fountas and Pinnell levels, however, you can use the conversion chart below and use itwith any leveling system you use in your district. If the chart does not show the leveling system you use, you can probably Google it and find a conversion chart. Here is a link to a correlation chart that includes: Learning A-Z, Age, Grade, AR, Fountas and Pinnell, Reading Recovery, DRA, PM Readers, and Lexile Levels.

Here's what others are saying:

❝Oh my gosh where has this been all my life?!?!?!? I never have to write another guided reading lesson plan or buy another word work unit or activity again. THANK YOU!!!❞

❝There are not words enough in the English language to express just what a phenomenal product this is. It was my goal this year to make my Guided Reading time more focused, and while I spent a lot of time and money on products to improve my practice, I still didn't have the know-how to put it all together. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN MISSING! Very explicit, very simple lessons AND the tools necessary to get my students to the levels they need to be. Absolutely a bargain at TWICE the price!❞
