This packet is a bundle of all 9 of the “Monthly Guided Reading Pack for Informational Text”.
Here are the units already included in the bundle.
Here is what is included in each of the units:
In each of the units there are 5 titles. For each of the titles, there are three versions—one for intervention groups, one for on-target groups, and one for challenge groups. While the word choice in each level varies, all 3 of them use the same non-fiction feature.
Also, all 3 versions teach the same content. These books allow you to provide your readers with text that is “readable” for guided reading. While these books are made using color photographs, many books contain black and white photographs. So feel free to print in color OR black and white. I suggest printing the books on cardstock and laminating for durability. You may also chose to reproduce them “½ page size” using the “multiple” option when printing a pdf. That is a perfect size for guided reading.
Each of the units includes a lesson plan with how to develop background knowledge and how to introduce the text.
Follow Up Activities
Even though the text in each of the 3 versions varies, they all 3 have the same non-fiction features and information. There are also differentiated word work and phonemic/phonics foundational work. You will be able to choose the activities that best meet the needs of your groups.
There are three different types of follow up activities:
• Word Work for children to practice sight words.
• Phonemic/Phonics Work for children to practice foundational skills.
• Non-fiction Feature Work to practice the feature used in the text.
