  1. This books sounds like a great resource to have. The one activity that I'm noticing my kiddos are really enjoying is one I use with my struggling group. We work on three sight words each time they visity me. I spell the word on a dry erase paddle the first time through, they build it with magnet letters, touch and spell, and then read the word. Second go through, I simply say the word.

    It's "OWL" Good in Kindergarten

  2. This book looks very interesting. I would love to check it out. The activity I find most useful during guided reading is having the students come up with questions. Depending on the book we are reading, the students may ask a question to the author, or ask a question about why a certain character acted in a particular way. I love their questions!!!


  3. I would love to have this book. I think Guided Reading is my favorite part of the day! ka**********@re******.net

    I adore Deanna Jump's Guided Reading packet. I frequently use her story maps with my kiddoes! I also ALWAYS send the new book home with their Guided Reading log for parent signatures. Students who read their books to their parents & return their log with a signature receive a small reward.

  4. We start our guided reading with an emergent reader that works for our theme of the week and our sight words. It gives my kiddos the confidence that they can read. My lower group can use their background knowledge on the theme and use the pictures to be word detectives and my higher level groups pull out their sight words amd use Cara Carrol's reading strategies. Thanks for the chance! Lauren

  5. How awesome! This really looks like a goldmine of a resource 🙂 My favorite activity during guided reading is having students do a turn and talk about the leveled reader we're working on. I use this with all of my different groups and just modify what it is they are sharing, discussing, or "teaching". It encourages buddy reading and helps with oral and listening skills. It really has been valuable in my being able to gauge their comprehension and other skills.

  6. This book looks great! I really love guided reading…one of my favourite things to do with guided reading is constrcting and deconstructing some of the sight words that we come across in the book. Getting the students to make connections and to infer meaning is something that I do a lot also. Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. I am a follower and love guided reading. (I am a reading teacher and am not familiar with this book). I love watching the thought process of my primary students during guided reading…discussing vocabulary, story endings and how they would change the ending, if they agreed with the actions of the character, simply watching them read using strategies.

  8. Yipes, I do not have a favorite guided reading activity because we only do guided reading in the Spring. Next year I will be teaching first grade and will need to become an expert.I think this book would really help. Do you think your TPT reading packet is appropriate for First grade? Thanks! jb**********@sc***.net

  9. As a first year teacher, I am looking for anything to help me teach my kiddos better! I think guided reading is something I need to focus on more with my group. This book would be a great resource for me! I am a follower and love reading your posts! I have used many of your ideas in my own classroom! We also began using Journeys reading this year, so everything you post to liven it up is very useful! Your blog is great! I am in the process of loading up my shopping cart at tpt! LOVE that your items are on sale! Thanks! el********@gm***.com
