    Jan Richardson is a very good writer about Guided Reading and makes it accessible for the education professional. She provides clear instructions, charts and guides to copy and use. Richardson's book is great for professional development, classroom use and any educational setting. I definitely learned more from Jan's book. I highly recommend it. Students with disabilities and Dual Language Learners are included also.

    Looking for how to make your guided reading lessons more effective? Jan Richardson's latest book supports teacher planning for each stage of reading. There is a chapter devoted to each stage which clearly describes how to complete each step of a guided reading lesson. Each step of the lesson for each stage of reading is supported by videos of Jan teaching and adaptations for DLL and Students with IEPS. She provides "next steps" for struggling readers at each stage. The book ends with 29 modules Looking for how to make your guided reading lessons more effective?

I found this updated version much clearer and more descriptive. Must read for anyone who teaches guided reading!

    This is a "must-have" if you are teaching students to read at the Pre-A, Emergent, Early and Transitional stages of reading. When I work with school districts that want to help students at these stages, this text is our anchor. Richardson's approach is theoretically based in what we know about how children acquire concepts about print, alphabet knowledge, phonological awareness, decoding/encoding and comprehension. Her lesson plans are easy to follow and engaging--children will want to come back This is a "must-have" if you are teaching students to read at the Pre-A, Emergent, Early and Transitional stages of reading.

    (Note: Book review was written after reading the book, not after implementing what was read. If I remember I may update this review in the fall/ winter after I've had a chance to try/ test it out.) This book is a FANTASTIC resource for any elementary ELA teacher.

If I remember I may update this review in the fall/ winter after I've had a chance to try/ test it out.) This book is a FANTASTIC resource for any elementary ELA teacher. There's a brief introduction at the beginning explaining what guided reading is and why it's so important, but the bulk of the book dives into the details of the different lesson components and materials that make up the lesson based on the student's reading level. Some of the information overlaps from chapter to chapter, but aside from slightly tedious it didn't bother me (ex when I first purchased this book I was planning on teaching Kindergarten, and was going to focus on the Pre A and Emergent Reader chapter. In the middle of reading this book I got a call from my principal saying I was moving to first grade, so I also read the Early Reader chapter once I found that out. Since the principles build on each other, I found a lot of repeated text, but clearly that text I still felt was relevant because I gave the book 5/5 stars). There is an appendix in the back that contains copies of lesson plan formats and assessment guides to use. There's also the code to access the website containing videos so you can see some of these practices done in real time with real students. The last chapter of the book contains comprehension strategies that can be used in the lesson portion of the guided reading time. I'm excited to implement this new researched based strategy as I believe it will really help the students at my school grow and succeed.

    This book is amazing! I have searched the web and and still struggle to organize my guided reading groups and know specific instruction for every level. This book has provided me with so many resources and thorough examples. I now feel confident to teach guided reading groups. Highly recommend! Even if you do have solid reading groups, this book may give you additional ideas.

    Love, love, love this book! I borrowed a copy and I definitely need to own it. If my district doesn't buy us copies, I will be buying it myself. Everything in this book is so logical and practical. No silly fluency strategies that are not authentic. This book is a must-have for all K-8 reading classrooms!

    There were some interesting suggestions to help out pre-readers and emergent readers that I am looking forward to implementing in my classroom. However, I felt that as the book went on many of the strategies were repetitive.

    This is a great resource to use in order to plan lesson plans for guided reading. There are many activities in each lesson plan that correlates to a range of reading levels. It is very easy to follow and easy to read.

    Guided reading: What? How? Why ? The book does a great job breaking down what you should do and not do in guided reading. Helps you structure and integrate word work and writing into the guided reading process.

    A lot of information here, but once I really get a chance to implement it in my classroom, it will be a great help.

    I’ve never found a resource as practical and concise as this book. If you think you know Guided Reading already, think again. So many resources that I plan to implement on a daily basis!

    If you are new to guided reading instruction, if you are in college pursuing an Early Childhood degree, or if your school does not provide guided reading resources, this is the book for you. It clearly defines expectations for guided reading, how to initiate, and what to implement with each group at each level. It includes resources and references worth checking out as well!

    One of the best PD books I’ve ever read. I’ll wear this one out. So many great tools and resources included. I’ve tabbed and highlighted through the whole thing.
