Fountas & Pinnell

Elevating Literacy Instruction

With over 20 years of literacy leadership, the extensive work of Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell has coalesced into Fountas & Pinnell Literacy.  It’s a comprehensive, systematic design for high-impact literacy instruction. These Rockstars of Reading offer Assessment, Intervention, Professional Books and essential Classroom Resources redefining and elevating literacy teaching and learning.  Since students are fully engaged and feel a sense of joy in their own learning with original texts, they achieve a higher level of literacy. The level of conversation in classrooms we’ve observed is unbelievable! We are proud to be on this journey with F & P since 2007!
