Guided Reading Series

I first started guided reading my first year of teaching almost ten years ago now.  Looking back I realize now I did more of a modified novel study, but eh, it wasn't a bad place to start! It got me reading, and reading and observing and watching until I feel I have a relatively firm foundation in guided reading.  I have decided to do a blog series focusing on all the things I do in guided reading.

First I am going to focus on the actual process of a guided reading lesson and all the parts that I include.  Then I am going to focus on teacher observation and recoding of infomation and organizing materials.  My last blog entry will be about what the other kids are doing while the teacher teaches guided reading groups.  If you have any questions, suggestions or requests I would love to hear them!

I have lots of great ideas, printables and pictures coming soon!



  1. YAY! Just in time. Each year I struggle with this!

  2. Do you know how needed this is? You are so thorough Mandy and I can't wait to read what you post. You are such an inspiration to me. I teach 4th grade in VA.

  3. This is going to be a lifesaver!! I was seriously talking just today about how I wished I knew how to teach my guided reading groups better!

  4. Seriously, you guys make me feel the best!!!!!! You guys are making me feel like a million dollars and motivated to get this started! The first post should be up sometime this week!
