To celebrate our 30th Anniversary we are giving you FREE GUIDED READING TEACHER NOTES, one for each year group from Year 1 to Year 6, so you can try one out with your class, whichever year group you teach.

Loved by teachers and literacy consultants, Badger Learning’s Enjoy Guided Reading range of teacher books has earned its reputation for providing quality lessons and positive learning outcomes. Our aim is always to give teachers the best tools for the job, saving valuable time on planning and reading texts before each guided reading session. Lesson plans are photocopiable and can be used by teachers, TA’s and pupils themselves.

Each resource includes:

  • Chapter-by-chapter synopses
  • Guidance for teacher-led sessions
  • Questions and answers for independent and supported work
  • Follow-up writing activities
  • Review questions for teachers to lead a discussion
  • Answers to questions linked to National Curriculum objectives
  • Curriculum coverage sheet
  • Assessment Sheets

We have a wide range of resources available, so you can pick and mix your very own bespoke collection matched to your schools requirements, or update your range of texts in the knowledge that we have a resource to support you. With 30 years of experience in supporting teachers and inspiring children, we’d love you to celebrate with us with a gift of FREE Teacher Notes!
