Looking for a GENERAL item to use in your guided reading groups? Looking for something that will work with any text? Basal or Chapter Books?
Looking for something that challenges your highs AND your lows?
If you answered YES!! This Guided Reading Pack is for you! I made this as an alternative to those huge Comp. packets we used to give with new chapter books. I was finding myself covering all of those Comp. questions during mini lessons, so this is my alternative.
I make this a packet for all of my students. Then, when meeting with different leveled groups, I steer my lower performers to the lower level thinking activities (Character Portrait, Sequencing, Vocabulary or Story Elements)
When meeting with my high performing students I steer them towards the higher level thinking activities (Alternate Ending, Sequencing (can be used as both), etc.)
My middle guys I would like to see doing a little of both.
You can use this however you'd like. I like to give my students the choice to choose their three-five. DIFFERENTIATION everywhere! :)
