Guided Reading Part Two

Hey Y'all,  If you are reading this then that means you not only survived Halloween at school with your Littles, you also survived the DAY AFTER Halloween.  Worst day ever to try and teach!  YIKES!
 A few weeks ago I did a post about Guided Reading and I promised to come back and answer your questions.  I received quite a few of them so this will be spread out over several posts.

You can check the bags out HERE

I will post about Word Work in the next post but I wanted to go ahead and include
this freebie because someone was having trouble with the old link.  Click on the picture below
to download the Stretchy Snake work mat.

  1. Fantastic post about Guided Reading and spot on!!! :)

  2. is another great place to find inexpensive books. I go to my local library when they are having a sale and fill up a box for about 10 or $15.00 for my classroom. I have acquired some great books just watching for the local libraries in my area that are having a sale.

  3. GR is my weakness. I'm always looking for new strategies. Thanks!

  4. Love all your ideas. Thank you for sharing. I love stretchy snake work mat and so do my kids. I was wondering if I missed The My Friend Frankie Emergent reader. I have your Halloween Unit and thought I had read their was an emergent reader. By the way your daughters wedding looked beautiful.

  5. Thanks for all the great ideas! We just started following you, we love your blog. We recently started one of our own, we would love if you checked it out!

  6. What is the "book room"? I haven't heard of it and when I did a web search, found something from scholastic for ordering large amounts of books. Is that what you referred to or is it something else? Thanks! Loved this post.

  7. AMAZING! Love the Guided Reading posts! Please keep them coming!

    1. Making your own books is a great idea. I have a subscription to Reading and Science A-Z, but making your own books allows for the topic to be exactly what you need. I have tried it a few times this year. Great reminder.

  9. I just started following your blog -- thank you SO much for sharing all of this information. I'd love to hear more about making your own leveled books for students. I always feel like my attempts don't come out super appealing and engaging. Thank you again!

  10. What are your other students doing while you are with GR groups?
