This whole-class guided reading resource is designed to be used in daily guided reading sessions over 7 weeks with 5 levelled (or mixed) groups.
Using this resource, your whole class can access the same text but still work on improving their reading skills at their own level.
How it works:
The class teacher works with one group per session using the extract and the discussion grid whilst the other 4 groups work independently on the tasks.
A timetable is included which is designed so that specific independent tasks are completed before the teacher-led session.
The book is divided up into manageable chunks (2-3 chapters per week) so the vocabulary pursuit and independent comprehension questions are based around those chapters.
You can personalise the tasks and the discussion questions based on what you want each of your groups to work on or acheive in the session. For example, you might skip the retrival questions and go straight to inference questions with a higher group and with a lower group spend much more time on vocabulary.
You may like to use the space on the discussion grid for assessment notes or comments.
