Let's face it- guided reading is not easy. When you're new to teaching reading or even experienced, its hard to find exciting worksheets and activities that will work with any story. There's always the basal and workbooks that go along with the week's story but I like to use a variety of trade books that fit my student's interest and levels. After reading a great post about Guided Reading, I headed to TPT! The first reading packets I purchased brought life into my guided reading time. If you need a little help with guided reading groups one store you should check out is Lesson Plan SOS. They have many units to choose from. I LOVE their Guided Reading With Pizzazz unit!! This unit contains lots of fun activities for jazzing up your guided reading lessons. I also love their unit Become a Guided Reading Guru! It's so hard to choose one so I just get them all! Get excited! The sweet ladies at Lesson Plan SOS have graciously donated $25 to their TPT store and the unit Reading with Pizzazz.
But I'm not stopping there. I'm always finding out new strategies to implement during guided reading. What the Teacher Wants is another fabulous blog that is also co written by two wonderful teachers. I loved this post about guiding reading tips and strategies. I think as teachers we are always learning new strategies. It's so wonderful we can blog and share these ideas. After reading another great post, I went straight to TPT and purchased Being a Guided Reading Wizard. Sweet Rachelle has also agreed to giveaway her Being a Guided Reading Wizard pack.
