High expectations are important in any upper elementary classroom and there are THREE ways that I make sure that I am set up for success.

Read about what guided reading looks like without  round robin, how to implement this best practice, and how to make it  effective for all of your kids, whether they're in kindergarten or upper  elementary! #guidedreading #bestpractice Guided Reading Third Grade, Guided Reading Materials, Upper Elementary Reading, Guided Reading Kindergarten, Guided Reading Lessons, Teaching 5th Grade, Reading Data, Guided Reading Groups, Student Reading
