This Guided Reading resource contains everything that you need to conduct successful guided reading groups in your primary classroom. All you need to do is add leveled books and you are ready to conduct amazing guided reading lessons and activities with your students. There is even a sample lesson plan that provides helpful hints and examples of ways to be sure that your students will get the most out of each guided reading lesson!
Included in this resource:
*1 day lesson plan template - intended to be used with lower level books for guided
reading in small groups or one-on-one for individualized instruction.
*2 day lesson plan template - a more in-depth plan and includes a two day lesson
plan that incorporates word work and guided writing (example plan also provided).
*Student Reading Journal - Cover and many different choices for writing paper to be
included in the journal. I use this journal with my students for the guided writing
portion of the lesson plan or for higher reading level groups, we use it for
independent reading responses.
*Student Vocabulary Journal - Cover and journal pages included. I use this to work
on vocabulary in my guided reading groups, however, I have used it whole group
with the entire class many times as well. It is great for helping students to better
understand new vocabulary words (what it means, using it in a sentence, drawing a
picture of it). My students love using this journal!
* 29 Making Words Activities - My students love doing these activities. These can be
used in guided reading groups as part of your "word work" or they can be used
whole group with the entire class!

Most Important Event, Story Frames (to sequence events)
