    It's just more paper work.
    A simple timetable is good enough- I feel,

    As long as the sessions that take place are valuable and provide children with good opportunities to read a range of texts, the adults discuss and question the children's knowledge and understanding and they are generally worth while.

    Anyone else agree- or do you enjoy doing detailed plans for guieded reading?

    I really feel a timetable is more than enough.

    What are your sessions like?
    I bet some people will argue- they need to be detailed/ like any other subject...

    I work in a large school with 4 and 5 class entry.
    This year we decided to plan GR together, so we plan for a 3 or 4 week GR cycle. So I plan one set of books (e.g. non-fiction. Teach to my class for the 3 or 4 weeks as agreed. Then pass on to the next teacher.
    So we have a fair amount of planning to do, but then pass it on so cover a term for one lot of planning.
    It is working well so far, especially as the head of lit asked us to use the reading targets (cannot remmeber waht they are called) so planning using the target overview is easier done for each other.
