Guided Reading Records - Band 1 -5

Guided Reading Records - Band 1 -5

I made these guided reading record sheets each time I listen to a group read. Each group and session had a new sheet. I highlight off the target the session has focused on which makes updating target tracker much easier! There is space for a reading focus and 2 questions along with the pupils names and book read during that session.
