Hi, I am in my second year of teaching (1st grade this year). With guided reading groups, do you use leveled readers? Because one of my co-workers uses the story from the reading series with her groups. So all students are reading the same story for whole group lessons and guided reading groups. In a way, I can see that her way would be beneficial, so the students are familiar with the story and can really master it. But I thought the books were supposed to be leveled? What way do you feel is more appropriate? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
