Guided Reading Lesson Plans

Happy Monday!

I was working on my lesson plans for GR this week and finally decide to change the page I use up. I was using a page per group per day. It was getting a little ridiculous! SO i decided to squeeze it all into one nice little spread sheet. :) Make life more simple. I group my kiddos by "color" so I have blue, green, purple, yellow, orange, etc. group.

You can download it for free on my TpT store just by clicking the picture!

the font is from A Cupcake for the Teacher and you can download here.... it is definately one of my favorites =)

We began our Arctic Animal & Non Fiction unit today. The kids LOVE this unit and so do I!! Here are a few photos from anchor chart mania today!

on our way out today the kids had to tell me what "stuck" with them from penguins today =)
they're so smart! We will use the penguin to label the parts tomorrow.

we read a non fiction book and watched a few national geographic short videos on penguins and completed out Can/Have/Are anchor chart. They then did their own individual page that will go in their non fiction book. 
We started talking about NF text features today. We talked about the TOC - how it helps you and where to find it. 

Tomorrow we are going to focus on photographs and captions. Here are the anchor charts below.

Stay tuned tomorrow for another Freebie for counting on in math! It is out of my winter unit that is in the works.

Have a great evening!! =)

  1. Hi Lauren,
    Your big penguin is so cute. We are wrapping up our polar regions unit and it was such fun. My kiddos had a blast learning about them. I love the facts they come up with!
