What is Guided Reading?
The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Guided Reading Collection is a small-group instructional context in which you support each reader’s processing of new challenging texts with using thousands of exquisite original texts and lessons for grades K–6. By bringing together a small group of children who are at a similar point in their reading development and guiding them to process a test that is leveled on a gradient of difficulty, you are able to provide an incremental amount of challenge at each reader’s edge of ability to process text.View the Sampler

How is it implemented?
The Guided Reading Collection is implemented with small-groups of students. Children read a teacher-selected text in a small group while the teacher provides explicit teaching and support for reading increasingly challenging texts. These texts are at the children’s instructional reading level and the children read the whole text. In guided reading teaching is responsive to individual student strengths and needs.
