*Many of the guided readers are the same for both 4th and 5th grade. This is factored into the price and the price difference is only for the readers that are not the same. Please refer to the list to see which units are the same for both grades.
*When using the online readers, please note that some browsers may auto-play the audio readings even though the auto-play functionality is disabled. If your browser is auto-playing the audio, simply flip to the second page then back to the first to stop the auto-play.
Not a problem! These resources also include a digital reader version accessible via any web browser. The Google Slides version of these units can be easily converted to PowerPoint for use with Microsoft Teams.
These units are also included in my comprehensive Skills Packs! With 5 skill-focused resources integrated into a two-week lesson plan, Skills Packs include everything you need to teach, develop, and practice a specific skill!
