Guided Reading Resources Perfect for Back to School

Hey there friends!

It's almost that time of year where we get to meet lots of new faces. For students, the start up of school is always fun, a little crazy and for some it can bring about the butterflies. When I discovered the book "Butterflies on The First Day of School" I knew it would be a perfect mentor text to help students overcome those back to school worries. I loved how the book not only showcased relatable experiences for students, but also showed how the main character worked through her worries. I decided this text was an ideal fit for guided reading activities focusing on problem and solution. 

We have all had the butterflies before something big or exciting. School brings the butterflies into our students’ tummies for sure. Help them release their butterflies with these fun activities for the book “Butterflies on the First Day of School”.

Take a glimpse into my Guided Reading with a Purpose Curriculum with a fun craft, writing activity and comprehension extensions for a great back to school text. My goal is to help you teach your kiddos the standards in an effective and engaging way at a “just right” pace. I hope you enjoy this free resource to help you get a small peek of what is included in my ”Guided Reading with a Purpose” units. This engaging resource aligns perfectly with my Guided Reading with a Purpose Back to School Month 1 Bundle.

My weekly bundles keep students excited with five unique stories featuring a variety of activities that explore the focused comprehension skill as well as review previous strategies when applicable.

The goal is that your students walk away from the activity or week of activities feeling confident in the targeted skill. Each activity has a variety of layouts to accommodate your learners. I like to also offer a craft that typically has writing extension involved to continue the learning in a disguised way! Each week I offer spiraling review of previous week’s targets to keep broadening and refreshing their skill base.
