Taking Another Look at Guided Reading

I had a tough time fitting everything into my Language Arts block that I needed to do with the students last year.  So I'm taking another look at what I'm doing and when with each small group.  I created a PowerPoint with directions for me and visuals for the students.

This is part of the station rotations template that I will use to track what the students are doing at each station and when.

This is the poster of the "Must Do" activities at the Catch Up Station.

This is the poster of the "May Do" activities at the Catch Up station.

This *mostly* editable 23 slide PowerPoint includes:
~How to Use the Guided Reading Stations
~Station rotation chart with station descriptions
~May Do and Must Do posters
~Polka-Dot station labels
~Polka-Dot reading group labels
~Polka-Dot spelling group labels

You can pick up a copy by clicking here.

How do you fit in Guided Reading, Writing, and Word Study?  I'd love suggestions and/or comments!

Taking Another Look at Guided Math

I already use the Guided Math model for my math instruction, but I want to revamp it so things run a little smoother next year with the station rotations.  In an effort to do this, I created a PowerPoint with what I will need to display the information so it is easily accessible to me and the students.

This editable Guided Math Station packet includes:
~Guided Math Lesson Plan Template
~Directions on how I use the packet for Guided Math
~How to choose what stations different students will start with each day
~"Must Do" vs. "May Do" activities for each station
~Polka-dot station label cards and group numbers

These are an example of what the station label cards look like.

Do you do anything like this?  I'd love to hear your suggestions!
