Build a rich Guided Reading collection now or over time with the most powerful, engaging, original books to advance each student’s ability to process increasingly challenging books with fluency and comprehension.
What is Guided Reading?
The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ (FPC) Guided Reading Collection is a small-group instructional context in which you support each reader’s processing of new challenging texts with hundreds of original titles (6 copies of each title) that span text levels A through Z, with an accompanying lesson folder for each title. By bringing together a small group of children who are at a similar point in their reading development and guiding them to process a text 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.
Who is it for?
The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Guided Reading Collection is for the classroom teacher who wants to expand and refine children’s reading and writing powers in grades K–6. This context is implemented in a small-group setting for teachers to support each reader’s development of their systems of strategic actions for processing new texts at increasingly challenging levels of difficulty.

How is it implemented?
The FPC 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.
