As I learn to use Fountas and Pinnell and look at the resources available here I notice a lot of colored journals. These are writing journals from F and P and are different colored covers. There are red, purple, and yellow. Are there special colors for each grade? How do I know which is which?

Since you mention writing and the colors are red, yellow, and purple I think you are seeing the Writing Notebooks that are in the LLI Primary systems. (https://www.fountasandpinnell.com/lli/). All 3 colors come in each primary system. Some teachers use the colors to categorize groups (red group, yellow group, purple group) while others have a different color for each child in a group. There is no special color for a grade. You may use them as you wish.

Best wishes for success!
