I am trying to incorporate guided reading into my 5th grade classroom, but have encountered some problems. I would appreciate any insight that you could give me. I thought when you had guided reading groups that they should be reading on the same level, the same text, but then I am hearing that the groups should be flexible and change often. How can they change that often, if you want to keep students with the same reading level together?? I was thinking of doing Literature Circles with my higher kids and more of a guided reading approach with the lower acheiving students. Do you think that will work?
