    The Guided Reading with a Purpose Curriculum is used to not only meet standards but to teach grade-level themes and important social lessons that are so valuable to our classroom foundations.  Each day a new book is shared with your class, in fact, five different books are shared each week revolving around a central theme to keep your guided reading time focused and impactful. What you'll love most is that you don't need to rush through teaching multiple strategies or concepts in a week.  In order for our students to fully grasp concepts, we spend time analyzing and exploring the skills allowing students to make deeper connections to concepts. Each day as you share engaging text, create fun crafts, complete themed activities, and participate in focused book talks will lead to memorable learning for your students.
