3 Measures that Matter Most When Making Groups

“What do you do with the rest of the class during guided reading?”

It’s the #1 question I get asked about small group reading instruction.

We’re in a 4-week series with solutions and answers to that BIG problem. In this video, I’ll show you how just 3 markers can make it easy to group your students at their reading instructional level. I probably won’t be talking about the usual suspects, though!

Do you want access to the 3 markers that I’m discussing? Grab them for FREE here:

    • Dawny, the 3 activities I use during Guided Reading aren’t done Exactly that way during centers/stations. But if a group needs work on CVC blending (which we work on during Read It), then you can create something Similar during centers/stations.

      I’ll show examples next week. Does this make sense, in general?

  1. I love your switch it game. I bought the new Banagrams which are called My First Banagrams. They have lowercase letter tiles which are also different colours. Even have double tiles with diagraphs and letter sounds like ee, ea, or th, ch, sh etc.
