I am enjoying some down time after working 6 hours this afternoon to complete my second guided reading set. Phew...these resources are a massive undertaking, but I feel like they will be a great help for teachers. My plan is to complete one guided reading level every two weeks. I will be working my way up the scale, starting with level M. Once I complete M, N, O, and P, I will be bundling them into one resource for third grade teachers. Then I will continue through the levels up to grade six.
I spend about 3-4 hours researching the objectives that are chosen and instructional targets in each level. I analyze the Common Core State Standards, The Continuum of Literacy Learning, and text features specific to each level. From these resources, I create the objectives.
I would love some feedback from teachers on whether these resources are something that will be helpful in the classroom! Click on the pictures below and download the free preview on my Teachers pay Teachers page and let me know what you think!
