1. The Guided Reading Rotation Schedules will help you organize your guided reading time; especially when you have to work with lots of different pull-outs or push-ins during guided reading! Includes up to 6 guided reading rotations!

You can customize student's names and change group names. There are THREE templates included! All templates are in Microsoft Word.

The first template works best for teachers that have four rotations and students that are working at differentiated learning centers where students are able to practice with their guided reading group at their ability level.

The second template includes five groups and five rotations!

The third template works when teachers want to have students work with a partner (rather than a group of 4-6 students).

This can be placed on an overhead or on the projector during guided reading time.
