Guided Reading is one of my favorite times during the school day. One of my guided reading groups typically lasts between 10 and 20 minutes. I format my guided reading groups to consist of three different things:
1 A brain warm up (a game)
2 Reading a text of some sort
3 An extension/assessment
When my students come back to meet with me, I like to have everything organized in advance. I don’t want to waste the short amount of time that we have scrambling for books, letter tiles, or games to play. For that reason, I make sure that I have everything set out and ready to go before the day starts.
This packet will allow you to do just that. This packet is comprised ONLY of games that you can play during your guided reading groups. It includes 26 games for all levels of learners in your classroom.
From recognizing beginning sounds, to blends, to grammar, to editing, this pack has a game to help you get your students' brains ready to dive into reading.
