guided reading notebook.

There are SO many Guided Reading notebooks out there but I can still never find one that I love!  Creating my own was a major thing on my summer to-do list.  Since I start back next week with a 4 day math training {blech} I figured I better go ahead and get it started while I still have a chance.
The first page is for Guided Reading notes.  I have to create a separate weekly plan so this is more for my own sake.  Book titles, skill sets, activities, etc all go in my lesson plan notebook...which I never even look at.  This will stay in a binder on my table so I can make notes as my kids read and use it to plan future lessons.  {anyone else with me on that?!}
Then there are skill mastery checklists for blends, digraphs & dipthongs, vowel patterns, word endings and beginning reading skills like tracking or being able to isolate just the beginning sound of a word.
What's missing?  What's confusing?  What else should I add?  This is a work in progress and will probably be updated as I move through the school year but at least it's a start!  :)  Hope it helps!


  1. Looks great, Kristin! I re-vamped my blog and was wondering if you could come and take a look. I just want to make sure the banner on the top is not too crowded, and I respect your sense of style. :)

  2. Looks great! You are one of the most organized and creative people I've ever met! Good luck at your new school. You are going to have so much fun! BTW- you inspired me to create a teaching blog. It's not as fancy as yours, but I'm hoping to build more followers and continuously improve it this school year. Thanks for the inspiration!
