Guided Reading - All in One Sheet

More Guided Reading!

Are you sick of it yet??

I hope not!

There are still TWO more days!

(and then I'm going to show off some fun stuff we've been doing in class!)

Today's idea is a lot like my pamphlets I showed you on the linky post...

But instead of pamphlets, it's simpler.

Only one sheet.  It is in my Guided Reading Resource Pack {HERE}

(p.s...the original form of this sheet, I got YEARS ago when I took a workshop at our district. And as I was looking at the pictures, they were DJ INKERS!!! haha!! So funny, even back then...and do you know who I thought of??? That's RIGHT - YOU Miss TEENY (Kristin) and Patty, too!)

We do this for the story we read in small group. Before we begin, we start with a picture walk, Title and cover conversation, and a prediction.

Then I have them make an "I wonder" statement on the paper.

After they read it (however you want your kids to read it), we go through the book and pick out words that might follow a certain rule...or two...whether it's phonics or grammar (like suffixes).

THEN with those words, I have them use yellow, light green, light blue crayons and they "highlight" the letter(s) that follow that rule.
Such as...

"Highlight with the yellow crayon the letters that make the /ow/ sound in all the words"


"Highlight with the pink crayon all the words that have a suffix on them."

Again, some words might have more than one color in them because they have more than one skill in them.

THEN, we do evaluating and connecting with the book.

Now, this isn't all in one day.

Almost throughout the week we finish this.

And this doesn't include the comprehension part to it. 

But I hope this gives you another tool to use for your guided reading groups.

Make sure you go check out all the other link-ups! There are some great ones!

And I KNOW there are more on the way -

Can't wait to use it with my 3rd graders, and then make an amped up one to follow up. :) I love ideas that are great for any grade level! (Almost!)
