I hope you'll find this resource as helpful as I have!
Before guided reading was introduced to our school I'd heard about it from many of my friends at other schools. I researched many resources to learn more but I was unable to find everything in one place. So, this handbook is a culmination of my favorite resources. My intention was to develop a one-stop-shop for all necessary information. The instructional practices noted are what I know to be typical, but I encourage you to adapt it to meet your needs.
What is included:
Instructional Practices: what is guided reading,
why use guided reading, CCSS,
Assessment/Progress Monitoring and more
Data Tracking Charts: whole class, small group,
Reading Level Cheat Sheets (A-M):
correlations, text features, example text,
characteristics of reader at that level,
instructional topics, skills required to move to
the next level
Skills checklist by level with space for notes
