The following notebook pages are to show examples of guided reading activities related to the assessment focuses. These examples should be used as starting points for setting guided reading activities or independent activities for groups during guided reading sessions. They would need to be added to in order to ensure that you see the children demonstrating their progress over a range of activities. Please review the activities and adapt them to suit your children and curriculum. Teachers' notes on each page show what level the children may be working towards.
