Hello Literacy


I created this document to help teachers help their students at each level of guided reading. There is one sheet per level aa-Z.

I have taught Reading for over 25 years. I still own my first and original copy of Fountas & Pinnell’s Guided Reading book, first edition and I taught Reading Recovery for five years from 1996-2001. Since then, a lot has come along: The Continuum and BAS by F&P, Reading A-Z, Next Steps in Guided Reading by Jan Richardson, Scholastic Leveled Libraries, Blevin's A Fresh Look at Phonics...etc. but one thing remains true: reader behaviors and text level characteristics. This product aligns to all leveled reading instruction systems. It is universal, timeless & research-based. Add it to your Guided Reading toolkit. I hope you find the concise way it’s organized to be helpful.

*Please note that research tells us that Guided Phonics is best for emerging readers (K-1), and Guided Phonics remains best for developing readers (2nd + up).

I believe there is no other document like this that exists for teachers with such concise level descriptors with high frequency words AND phonics patterns/word work with dictation PER level all on one sheet. Please rate this document carefully. I take extreme pride and give extra attention to detail in everything I create and do.

There are over 300 reading comprehension teaching points, and over 130 phonics teaching points....literally, you have enough teaching points to last you ALL YEAR!

This documents has many uses. Let it guide your:

  • reading & phonics pacing guides
  • guided reading lessons
  • whole group reading minilessons
  • whole group phonics lessons
  • small group phonics lessons
  • individual reading conferences
  • reading assessments
  • writing and phonics assessments
  • reading response activities
  • reading expectations at parent conferences
  • PLC discussions around literacy instruction
  • leadership team and School Improvement goals
  • student study team/IEP goals
  • reading response activities
  • setting student reading goals
  • setting student phonics goals

Each sheet includes:

-Reading Behaviors at that level

-Teaching Points at that level

-Sight Words at that level

-Word Work at that level

-Dictation at that level

Thank you so much!
