I created this product when I realized how overwhelming guided reading instruction can be. Many teachers are asked to implement guided reading without support or training on how to do it. I believe that guided reading is one of the most powerful times of the day, and I wanted to make sure teachers had simple and effective tools at their fingertips to use! When I began guided reading, I had no idea what to do except put a book in front of my kiddos. Now I understand that there are many simple things I can do to support and plan for my readers! This pack is ideal for kinder-2nd grade teachers who work with readers at level A-S. This product has taken MONTHS to create as I wanted to make sure it was just perfect for you!
