Being a Guided Reading Wizard

Guided reading is not easy. I'll be the first to admit that I struggle sometimes with it. I have searched and searched for the best guided reading ideas to help my kiddos! I've racked the brains of former literacy coaches, super teachers, and even principals. I finally feel like I might be getting ahold of it.

Here is a bit how I organize it {from a previous post}

This is my {FAVORITE} guided reading tool ever (I got it from a workshop at my school).
This little folder organizes my students by level.  1st graders are ever-so-changing and always moving up so fast in reading groups. All you need is a folder, paper, velcro, and a little lamination!

Under each level there is a strip of "fuzzy" velcro. Then, each student has their own tag with their name on it and a piece of velcro on the back.
I take a running record of each student once a week. I keep it in this binder.
 For the cover of this binder {and a bunch others}, click {here}.
Each student has a tab in the Guided Reading binder.
I also keep anecdotal notes in there that I observed during the groups' reading time.
 For a copy of the running record sheet, click {here}.
These are my books for the day/week.  Each group is separated into colors.
The students know what color of group they are in.

After MANY requests by email and Facebook
I've created a Guided Reading Packet...with over 80 pages of activities and tools you can use in your small reading groups! It fits perfectly with kindergarten and 1st grade!

This unit is up on my Teachers Pay Teachers store
 and is on sale right now {I have this thing for sales}!!!

I'll give this 80 page packet away to the first person to comment with their email AND guess my next favorite thing to do other than teaching and blogging.

Is it???
a) organize 
b) craft
c) workout 
d) cuddle
