Interactive Guided Reading Mats for Kindergarten
Support your Kindergarten guided reading groups with these interactive mats!
Just choose the mat you want, print copies for your students, and use them as a support during the lesson. The mats will remind students what strategies they should be using before, after, and during reading. The mats also provide a simple activity for students who finish the book early (this part of the mat can also be used as part of your post-reading word work).
You can use these mats for any type of small group reading instruction - not just guided reading!
These leveled mats will help you:
- Organize your lessons and suggest reading strategies to work on at each level
- Give early finishers something to do that you don't have to prepare - typically a simple phonics activity
- Provide consistent visuals that remind students to use reading strategies
- Empower students to take more ownership of their reading
What levels are covered?
There are materials for Levels A-D, and E+. The "E+" materials are designed to challenge your more advanced students. (Note: if you're also looking at the 1st and 2nd grade mats, no mats are duplicates. Even though Levels D and E are also covered in the 1st and 2nd grade mats, the actual materials are different.)
What prep is required?
None! Simply print and use the mats. You can even re-use the mats by placing them in page protectors.
Are the mats editable?
Editable templates are included so you can create your own mats, if you like. However, the provided mats are not editable due to copyrights on the graphics.
What strategies are covered?
To see the strategies covered, please view the preview file (the last 3 pages includes the table of contents). There are also options included where you can add your own strategies.
