Color Coding Your Guided Reading Area

One very simple yet effective ways of organizing your guided reading area could be color coding. Color coding can help you to keep materials together so when the classroom lessons start to get busy and students are moving around with your materials, you can put them back in seconds.   Works perfectly in the elementary classroom.

Each group is assigned a color.  I keep the small games, cards, etc., in pencil pouches.  The book bins came from Target and the pencil pouches came from Big Lots.  Sometimes when my guided reading lesson is over I want the group to continue so I send them out with the pencil pouch.  When they are done I simply match colors together and throw them back in the bin. No need to think through which group belongs to which materials.
