Here is what is included in the Guided Reading Binder:
1. Guided Reading Binder Assembly Directions- 8 pages
In this section, I give detailed directions for how to set up your reading binder.

3. (Editable!) Reading Binder Cover Pages- 26 pages
This is a POWERPOINT file, which means that you will be able to insert a text box and type in your own cover binder titles. Some titles I like to create for my binder include: a personalized cover page with my name, guided reading schedule, guided reading groups, anecdotal records, reading conferences, guided reading lessons, ect.
4. Comprehension Posters- 10 pages
These clean, simple, and colorful posters are great for a bulletin board display. This file includes 10 different reading strategies that you can refer to in your guided reading lessons.
5. Guided Reading Teacher/Student Venn Diagram- 19 pages
This is a great lesson to teach when you are implementing guided reading groups at the beginning of a new school year. This interactive lesson gives the opportunity to teach the expectations of the teacher and the students in a guided reading group. I like to use two hoola hoops to create our Venn diagram, just like shown in the picture of the resource. There are 22 different expectations for your students to place in the correct spot of the Venn diagram. “Teacher, Student, Both” titles are also included for you to place in each component of your Venn diagram.
6. Intermediate/Primary Guided Reading Extension Activities- 28 pages
This resource includes different graphic organizers and reading response templates for students to complete as an extension to a guided reading lesson. There are 6 different graphic organizers as an option for upper elementary students (3-5th grade) and 6 different graphic organizers as an option for primary elementary students (1st and 2nd grade). Both include a “Guided Reading Booklet/Reading Response Journal” cover page.
7. Reading Prescription- 28 pages
Guided reading just got a bit more interesting! Dress up in your favorite doctor gear for this fun activity! Your students will love meeting with the doctor during their “routine” reading check up. Turn your typical reading conference or guided reading group into an “office visit” where you diagnose a “cure” for each student’s reading aliments. This would be fun to do during a goal setting session, during a review of data, or a typical guided reading lesson or reading conference. This resource includes detailed directions for implementation, colorful posters to print for display, reading prescription templates for the “doctor” to fill out for his/her patients. Also includes a doctor reading prescription art project. Students use the body templates and clip art to make the doctor and write a reading prescription listing the doctor’s orders for the reading ailments.
