    This is a massive list of guided reading lesson plans for any teacher. New teachers can use them as a step by step guide to guided reading and veteran teachers can use them for an extra resource or a fresh set of plans that they have not used previously.

    I love this short manual on guided reading. It explains what guided reading is and goes through the process in detail of how to set up and implement a guided reading lesson. It also shows in detail what the rest of the students do during this time by giving instructions for centers and how to implement them.

    An invaluable resource on not just the parts and steps to a guided reading lesson but how to do each part and what that looks like. For example, what does it mean to teach phonics and how do you do that, or what does it mean to teach fluency and vocabulary and how do you do that.
