Ever since the adoption of the Common Core Standards, teachers have been struggling to tie the rigorous requirements into the teaching of guided reading for all students’ reading abilities. There has never been a “one size fits all” approach when it comes to the teaching of guided reading. Teachers have struggled with finding a resource that will hit the common core standards while providing the differentiation needed to meet students at their instructional reading levels. Well, the wait is over! Wise Guys has developed Standards Based Guided Reading Booklets that can be used with any novel. Yes, you heard us correctly. As two experienced teachers who have taught guided reading for over a combined 20+ years we have created a guided reading novel booklet that covers the CCSS for literature and can be used with all of your guided reading groups.
No more teaching the CCSS in isolation. You can now teach and assess the CCSS for Literature with one resource and one novel!
We are providing you with our Guided Reading Booklet and CCSS aligned rubric to assess. All of these tools can be used to help your students become proficient in each standard area.
The booklets are super easy to assemble, and with the creation of our CCSS rubric, a snap to assess as well. These booklets can be used as a great communication tool with parents at conferences or to send home.
Did we mention that students love them too? Students like the design and the ease of use of just having to bring their guided reading booklet to their reading group. It is easy to manage and students feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when they are able to finish a page. Take a look at the below examples from a completed booklet from the book Wonder by RJ Palacio.
