Very useful for teachers

If you are a teacher in the primary grades this book is for you. If you are working on putting together a literacy program for your school or classroom this book will be very helpful for you. It has a lot of ideas on literacy including setting up literacy stations and my personal favorite, leveling books. This is a comprehensive guide on leveling books.

Wonderful Book To Use For Leveling A Bookroom!

This book is another great book from Fountas & Pinnell and it is very much like the other Guided Reading book but has more in-depth information. I personally used this book when I was leveling an entier bookroom for the District of Hagerman, New Mexico. This book also came up through conversations at a workshop that dealt with what to do while you are doing Guided Reading. Guided Reading is a wonderful way to give individual instruction to a small group of students at their level of reading. At this time many concepts and strategies can be taught in a short period of time. This book also has a great resource in the back which includes hundreds of books that are already leveled for you! Anyone interested in Guided Reading should buy this wonderful book.

A must have for teachers using guided reading

This is a great resource for teachers that use guided reading in their classroom. I teach first and second grade and this has been a big help for me. It saves time when your trying to level books. I did not receive most of my classroom collection of books until after school started. I was able to quickly look up the titles and start using them for instruction. Fountus and Pinnell have great ideas for literacy.


I am a first grade teacher that has used this book on a daily (hourly) basis. If you are using Guded Reading in your classroom, you will find this book of great value. The authors have again provided valuable information for the classroom teacher. The text is an excellent, easy read. The book also includes a list of books with a Guided Reading level as well as Word Count that makes Running Records a lot easier. I have been extremely impressed and have been able to find excellent valuable information that I can use immediately in the classroom! Again, if you are using Guided Reading in the classroom, you will find this an EXCELLENT RESOURCE. I also recommend their book Guided Reading.

Developing a Modern Reading Program

Matching Books to Readers is a time saver for teachers who are trying to combine the selection process of whole language with the need for students to have phonetically protected texts. There is theory here, but there is also practicality. It provides suggestions for a range of book in a classroom library so that the needs of all students are addressed. Perhaps one of its best features is the leveling of children books in the appendix. This can be used by the teacher to order (names and addresses of publishers are provided) or to provide books for students based on a variety of levels. It is a good companion for Guided Reading. I would reccomend it for any teacher who is trying to develop a balanced reading/writing program
