How do you plan for guided reading??? Sometimes I don't and I always end up disappointed. This year I am making an effort to have planned groups and I am attaching a planning guide that a friend of mine created for a district training on guided reading(I helped a little too!). This plan is based on information from the book Teaching for Comprehension and fluency by Fountas and Pinnell. I have to say that once I started using this form my groups were very focused and ran very smooth! If you scroll all the way through you will see the back side of the form and going even further you will see an explanation for what goes where. If anyone wants a better copy of the planning form, let me know and I can send you a PDF copy of the file that will print out much nicer than this :-)
I would love to read about how some of you do your planning for guided reading!
