This set of Guided Reading Strategy Cards includes 20 pages of cards with 5 different reading strategies (4 on a page) that can be used in guided reading groups to reinforce the reading strategy you are teaching. It includes color and black and white copies of your choice. There is also a full page strategy poster to display for each strategy.
These can also be used for independent reading or sent home for homework help. You can find more information about these particular strategies in the book The Next Step in Guided Reading by Jan Richardson.
