GRō: My Favorite Guided Reading and Small Group Planning App for Teachers


Do you wish you could spend less time planning for guided reading? Easily save your lesson plans for future reference? Have student data at your fingertips?

If so, you are going to LOVE the GRō app!!Looking for a guided reading app? This one is the best! What is GRō?

GRō is an app designed just for teachers! It began as a guided reading app, but it can also be used to plan and organize lessons and assessment data for any type of small group instruction (guided math, anyone?!).

What makes GRō unique?

One of the things I love most about this app is that it was designed by a real teacher, Amanda! She was trying to keep her own guided reading lessons and data in order, and she wasn’t having much luck with general organization apps. She needed something JUST for teachers…so she created it. Amazing!

Will Gro allow me to enter notes by writing on the screen of an ipad using a stylus?

This looks amazing! I am totally sold on this app.

My fear is that I get excited, buy it and then don’t utilize it, properly. We don’t have the best internet/technology at my school, and I am a big paper and pencil person. I know I would not be goos at typing in anecdotal notes. Do they have to be typed in? Can a stylus be used? I am just wondering.

Thank you for your dedication.

Hi! I have two kindergarten classes that I would need to organize. Does the app support creating more than one class (then groups within each of those classes)?
