Research Based

Guided reading is a crucial element in the balanced literacy approach to teaching literacy. It is instruction that is differentiated based upon the students’ needs and which allows the students to practice reading with a coach, their teacher, along side them.  Experts such as Irene C. Fountas, Gay Su Pinnell, and Jan Richardson have showed us time and time again why guided reading is the heartbeat of teaching children to read.  Each lesson element is created with this in mind.

Teacher Friendly

Many teachers want so badly to implement guided reading but are overwhelmed by the task. They are not quite sure how to execute it and they need a coach to walk them through it. Each leveled kit has teacher scripted lessons for each book, teacher notes explaining the reading level, a breakdown of the lesson components explaining the importance and why, easy-prep materials, and organization ideas.

Parent Involvement

During early literacy, parent involvement and outreach is a crucial element to a child’s success.  They want to help, yet aren’t equipped. Each guided reading level comes with a parent note that explains the level—what the child came from, what they are working on now, and what they will work on next.  Each leveled reader has a parent guide that helps parents know what behaviors to support and questions to ask.  Their involvement is a valuable element in early literacy.

Student Engagement

Learning to read is a breeze for some students and a true struggle for others.  Teachers are able to keep them engaged by using texts that have strong supporting illustrations, hands-on word work activities, eye-catching teaching posters, and a simple teaching routine.
