This is a picture of the rotation chart that I use to remind students

what they should be doing during Guided Reading. Each group of students is

given a number. During Guided Reading, each group is either meeting with

me, doing Independent Reading, or working on centers. The groups rotate

after 20 minutes, which I keep track of by setting an electronic timer.
