I absolutely love Jan Richardson’s The Next Step in Guided Reading and The Next Step Forward in Guided Reading. However, I often found it difficult and very time consuming to gather all the necessary materials to implement all parts of the recommended lesson plan. I also found myself flipping through the book in order to figure out what letters, words, etc I needed for each lesson. In order for my guided reading instruction to be more intentional, I really needed help with organization. So, I decided to take each part of the lesson plan and break it down into quick easy notes for me (or a sub) to reference during my lesson PLUS have all materials needed in one place.
