Book Study

I am excited to be a part of my very first book study! :)  We will be discussing the book, Guiding Readers  by Lori Jamison Rog.  This book will discuss the best practices of your guided reading time.  I love the second part of the title- Make the most of the 18 minute guided lesson.  This book was published in 2012 and she quotes the 2 sisters!!-- so you know this has some of the most up-to-date- current- stuff!!  You can begin by going to Thinking of Teaching where there is a survey to gage your knowledge and thoughts on guided reading.  You can also follow along with the book, chapter by chapter.  Get the schedule {here}
Be sure to stop by here @ Tori's Teacher Tips on June 25th as I discuss Chapter 2- The Guided Reading Lesson Sequence!  If you are interested in reading along with the book as we discuss the chapters- you can read it for FREE on click {here to read the book} Just click on the the book where it says Preview Online OR if you like the book you can {order from the publisher}

I'm thrilled- as this is an area of my day that I can ALWAYS use fresh ideas!
