grades

Another great item to pick up is

This packet was created to help make guided reading more concrete and easy for a
teacher to organize and implement. This packet includes information on how to
run guided reading groups, how to fit guided reading instruction into a very

getting started. Several photographs (including full page collages) are included
to show how my teaching area for guided reading has evolved of the years and how
I set up my materials.

This packet also includes several ready-to-use
ideas to make reading more meaningful and meet the needs of your diverse

If you are starting math workshop you might enjoy these simple games:

Each sort is slightly different and scaffolded by difficulty. These standards
are correlated to first and second grade Common Core standards.
