In this document, you’ll find a blank template and an example of how I used this every day in guided reading instruction. One template would get me through at least nine weeks of instruction for one group. When all deficit skills had been mastered, I tested again and found new needs based on the data.
This form will allow you to take and use anecdotal notes with ease and make adjustments based on student need. More importantly, it will give your guided reading instruction a clear and thoughtful focus.
