This has become my students' favorite guide in planning for guided reading. Easy to use with solid ideas for teaching small group reading instruction at the five stages of reading. I worked with Jan Richardson when she was a literacy consultant in the district I coached in - she was amazing! I've been waiting for this book - I was so excited about it coming out that I ordered two copies (at different times) without realizing it. I'm also using this with reading specialists in the field and they ...more

Excellent resource! Highly recommend to any teacher but definitely to new teachers!!
Good ideas in Chapter 6 for fluent readers.
This was a professional book club choice for school and one I enjoyed, although I feel it is more useful for the lower elementary. It still had some nice ideas for all reading groups though and tons of information. Overall, a great resource to have in your library.
I love the resources and ideas. It's a great book for teachers new to guided reading. We followed the schedule for the 6-week set up process and it's been working really well! I also appreciate the ideas for centers and things to focus on at each level cluster.
Very useful ideas and simple plans for managing a reading block with diverse reading levels and abilities. I liked the discussion of how to address the different needs of readers that are working on the same level. It makes me excited to get back in the classroom!
I love this book! I've moved from upper grades to first grade and didn't feel like I was making the most of my guided reading time. This book gave me the framework that I was looking for along with extremely helpful charts and lists. This book is a keeper!
My teacher friends, I highly suggest reading this book if you teach guided reading. Great tips,strategies and lesson plan ideas. I learned a lot from this book and am excited to use this information this year in my classroom.

Great resource for any elementary teacher. She has clear and concise ideas that help a teacher plan out their guided reading time with students. I refer back to this book multiple times a year.
Melissa Asher
This is a WONDERFUL resource for planning individualized small group reading lessons! It provides direction for teachers in creating beneficial lessons for ALL reading levels.
Excellent book for all reading teachers! The book tells you exactly what to do during small group time. I can't wait for school to start to try these new ideas.

On a refresher course of different ideas for reading as I get ready for a training that I am doing. I like Richardson's "practicalness".
This is the most comprehensive book I've read on guided reading. I highly recommend it!
Jennifer Brown
A must read for elementary teachers! I've read it once and I am reading it again.
Diana Pettis
One of my colleagues in Sanford recommended this.

Wish I would have had this as a new teacher!
Richardson provides a clear plan for teachers who are scaffolding the reading process for readers.
Great resource
