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.
A-Z Book Listing – Lists books according to level,
reading strategy, comprehension, phonics, grammar/mechanics,

website to use. This site includes the book’s genre as
well as skills to teach.
