I keep everything for guided reading in my guided reading binder: class lists, groupings, lesson plans and conference notes.
The first page in my binder is a flexible grouping sheet that my school provides. We use this sheet to note the groups of students and their instructional focus.
I use a few gradebook pages from BusyTeachersCafe to keep track of the center rotations for the week. I list the centers along the top to keep track of which student has been to which center during the week. It's a little sloppy by the end of the month, but it gets the job done!
You may notice that there are some students who do not go to centers. This is because we have AIS and ESL during reading workshop, so those students are pulled out.
I use the same gradebook page to keep track of my reading conferences. This page is from the first marking period, so it's a bit sparse. I just note the date of the conference on the gradebook page.
The rest of my binder is organized by guided reading group. I keep my lesson plans and observation sheets in those sections.
My school has one uniform conference/observation sheet that we all use:
This stays in the binder as well until it is completely filled in and then I move it to my data binder.
For lesson plans, I keep most of my questions in stickies in my books, but I like to jot down a few ideas before I start the lesson. I made this little sheet to write my plans for two days of guided reading.
If you want to grab any of these forms, you can download this freebie from my TpT store!
