Hello,


We are looking for more information about the correct sequence of books for the grade 1 Guided Reading kit. When we login to the digital resources the list of books we see online matches the book list in the systems guide. However, we read on the discussion board that the systems guide is not the correct sequence and that the sequence printed on the labels was the one we should be following. The problem with using the labels is that they don't have all the books for a level listed together.. For example, 10 of the books for level D are on page 1 of the labels and then the second set of 10 books is one page 3 of the labels. We want to make sure that the books listed on page 1 are the start of the sequence and the books listed on page 3 are the last books in the sequence. We also want to make sure the list starting with Maddy's Tooth--> Ron's Robot would be considered the first five books in the sequence where as Bear and the Puddle --> A Job for Sloth would be considered the last five books in the sequence.


Thank you for any help you can provide.

The suggested sequence for the FPC Guided Reading lessons is in the System Guide for each collection, not the Collection Guide. The books are arranged in the suggested sequence in the online resources.

Thank you for the reply. We are still left with some questions... The labels, which we are assuming are the same sequence as the Systems Guide, appear to have two lists. The first list, or two pages of labels, has titles A-J (but not all the titles D-J). The second list, or pages three and four of the labels, has titles D-M. Does this mean that the books should be organized A-J and then D-M? Does this make the second set of titles more complex than the first? Or, should we put all the level D books together and does this mean that the titles on the first page are at the beginning of the sequence and then titles on the third page are at the end of the sequence?

Looking forward to getting some additional help with this.

Thanks!

One more thing.. we noticed there are two J titles that are not listed on the labels, the are Chester's Cake and The Tough Tug. Where in the sequence do these two titles belong?

The two titles are listed in the Online Resources following Chester’s Sweater. This would be the sequence suggested.
I am sorry for the missing labels. You may still find them on a separate page.

I hope this helps

Please disregard the order of the labels since the labels were added as the books were printed and available. Instead, please follow the sequence of texts as listed in the Online Resources. If you are sharing the guided reading texts with a team of fellow teachers, consider the tips and ideas for coordinating the use of the texts and accompanying lessons listed in either the System Guide (page 106) or the Collection Guide. If your students are advancing and ready for the next level based on the behaviors needed for proficiency at a level, you may not use all the books and lessons in a level. Be cautious however. If children are finding the reading very easy, be sure to look at The Literacy Continuum for the level, and think about evidence that children have strong control of most of the behaviors and understandings required for the level.

We wish you success,
