Guided Reading: The Iron ManQuick View

Guided Reading: The Iron Man

I’m the English Coordinator at a small school and I took on the task last year of developing a guided reading programme for KS2 as I noticed this was missing from the school. I have included: -the recording sheet I use (not entirely mine as I found this somewhere and made some changes) -a sheet of individual pupil questions that they glue into their Reading Response journals after reading a chapter with the teacher (again not entirely mine as I found some questions here and there). It will save lots of paper as I got 8 sets of questions per page. I am sharing this guided reading resource with you in the hopes that it will save you some bit of time and enhance your guided reading lesson. I know I lose countless hours looking up resources, creating resources and copying resources myself, so if this helps you in any way, then I count that as a small victory for our educating community.
