Do you sometimes struggle to fit in all of your guided reading groups?
Do you wish you had tools on hand to model a certain skill or strategy quickly?
Do you wish you had organized, ready-to-go resources for your students to practice important skills at each reading level?
These ‘wishes’ were the inspiration for my newest resource: Guided Reading Warm-ups!
This toolkit is the perfect resource for reviewing a few skills to warm up your students’ brains before your guided reading book, or as a quick strategy lesson before sending them off to read independently!
***NEW!!!*** The DIGITAL versions of ALL components are now included! Perfect for distance learning!
There are 3 components to this resource, for each level! PRINTABLE + DIGITAL
- 1-page warm-ups: These are designed to be a quick 2 or 3-minute review and practice of reading skills and strategies to warm up your students for reading! You can do the whole page or pick a section to work on. Teacher directions to read to students are in each box, so these are great for assistants and subs as well. There are 65 warm-ups in this bundle for levels AA to D.
- Skill Cards: These cards focus on one skill at a time, providing many practice opportunities. There are 250 cards included in this bundle!
- Teacher Tent Cards: These foldable cards are perfect for introducing or reviewing the skill/ strategy, modeling, and keeping on display for reference throughout your lesson! No planning necessary and no more fumbling to find an example to model! Just read the teacher side and show the example side to kids. 74 tent cards are included in the following 4 categories:
- Print Concepts
- Comprehension & Monitoring
- Fluency & Expression
**Please note: The tent cards overlap with the tent cards in sets 2 and 3: I included them in all sets because they can be used across levels** However, this set originally had 40 cards and I’ve added 34 since then. If I create more, they will also be added to this set.
