Last year I started midyear, had little experience with teaching guided reading groups with a whole class full of kids, and I just chose books at their levels and did lessons, not really keeping plans or anything. This year I think I want to keep plans of my guided reading lessons, if anything just have a format and check off things we will do each lesson, or a fill in the blank page for each book we do, nothing fancy and time consuming. I'll have about five groups, and then a kid who is about a year ahead. Please share how you plan your guided reading group lessons! Thanks.
