When I am teaching Guided Reading, I like to keep notes about how they are doing so that I have data to evaluate when I am deciding if I want to move them to a new level, or when I am talking to parents about progress (or lack thereof). So, I have developed this simple form that I complete. I actually have the students fill in their name, book and level each time we start a new book. Then, each time students come to Guided Reading, I jot down notes on their sheet (which also has a list of the activities I will generally do with each book). Once we have finished the book, I file each student’s sheet into the portfolio/binder to be evaluated later.
It’s a simple form, and I have left it editable, so that you can change the activities. Grab a FREE copy from Google Docs to use in your class.
