I love new technology…I also love being organized, guided reading and all things that keep me on track to make my readers as successful as possible. I am thrilled to share this amazing Guided Reading app with you that was created by a teacher who also loves all these things that I listed! The GRo app allows you to make the most of your guided reading time by keeping you prepared for all your groups in one easy format!
I was so excited when Amanda Duke, the creator, reached out to me. The minute I began testing out the app, I knew it was amazing! If you know me, you know I’m a huge fan of Evernote and that I’ve used it for guided reading student notes. However- this new app covers everything possible I’d want to get down in one spot for my guided reading group! No need to use Evernote any longer for managing student data in regard to guided reading groups..of course I still use it daily for everything else in my life… 🙂
Amanda created the app (with her hubby!) because she realized there was no app out there that met the needs of what she was looking for in regard to staying organized for guided reading groups and with student data. When you begin using the app, you can immediately tell that it was created by a teacher who knows guided reading and does guided reading well!
The app is incredibly user-friendly. It truly is an amazing reference tool that you’ll constantly be going back to both for teaching your guided reading groups and for follow up meetings about students. Here’s a closer look at the app and definitely check out the website as well to get more information! One of my favorites, Alison, over at Learning at the Primary Pond also wrote up a wonderful post all about this app- check it out for even more detailed info!You can download this amazing guided reading app from the app store here!
