Guided Reading Timetable

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Roberta Cresswell

If you have more groups than days, or not enough space on your timetable to hear each group on the same day each week, make a rotating timetable.

Each group has a picture on a laminated wheel in the centre, held in place with a split pin. You can arrange a laminated label around the groups, where each week you write a spelling / computer / handwriting / reading / Guided Reading job, that can be rewritten as necessary. Any resources for jobs are in a matching tray. Then, every time you have a spare 15 minutes for guided reading, just rotate the group to the next job.

It means children know what they are doing, and you know that every group has had an equal amount of time reading with you or doing other jobs, even if you have to miss a day or two or alternatively, fit in 2 sessions in a day!
