I need help understanding the thinking behind the organizational system of the FPC Book Club resources. The technology department mentioned that there was not an unpacking video guide. Can you explain the 3 bins and how that works with 8 text set labels? We can definitely figure out our own organizational system, but we want to know what F&P suggests before we start to figure this out.

As you indicated, The Fountas & Pinnell ClassroomTM Book Clubs Collection includes 32 titles organized into eight text sets, which allow teachers to conduct book clubs approximately once per month throughout the school year.

The text sets will also relate to titles in other instructional contexts, such as Interactive Read-Aloud, Shared Reading, and Independent Reading. Those titles (from other contexts or even from other text sets) may be listed (in the lesson guide) as possible resources to reinforce that Book Talk theme, topic, author, etc.

The overview for each text set will suggest an essential question and big idea to focus your instruction around. The text sets are listed as Text Set 1 to Text Set 8 in the Online Resources for your convenience and as a possible organizational tool. You might follow that order, since books from other contexts will be used in conjunction with the Book Club set, but you may also determine a different focus and text set for that particular month. The critical organization would be to keep the books in each text set together.

I hope this information proves helpful,
