If you feel disorganized, unprepared, or unsure about your small-group or guided reading, then you are in the right place! This toolkit is perfect for streamlining your guided reading instruction in kindergarten and first grade.
Do you sometimes struggle to fit in all of your guided reading groups?
Do you wish you had tools on hand to model a certain skill or strategy quickly?
Do you wish you had organized, ready-to-go resources for your students to practice important skills at each reading level?
These 'wishes' were the inspiration for my newest resource: Reading Warm-ups!
This toolkit is the perfect resource for reviewing a few skills to warm up your students' brains before your guided reading book, or as a quick strategy lesson before sending them off to read independently!
⭐️⭐⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This is an AMAZING resource! I always struggle to get together plans for all my guided reading groups, but don't have to anymore with these warm up activities! Very engaging activities for my struggling learner kiddos. Thank you!” -Brittany C.
