The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Shared Reading Collection texts are an exquisite collection of original big books, in a variety of genres, with accompanying lesson folders. Six copies of each book are also provided in a small size for children to revisit during independent reading. Some of the books have special features such as flaps, cutouts, and foldouts to engage and excite children.
The Artful Read-Aloud is a user-friendly guide that builds a bridge between the artistic world and the classroom. Rebecca Bellingham draws on her experience as a performer, teaching artist, classroom teacher, and literacy coach to make explicit connections between the arts and reading aloud, providing dozens of easy moves teachers can make that can enhance, elevate, and deepen the impact of interactive read-alouds.
The Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Book Clubs Collection provides an authentic opportunity for children to apply many of the literacy behaviors and understandings that they have learned through other instructional contexts. As they bring together much of their learning in this context, children develop a sense of agency. The experience of exchanging ideas with their peers and co-constructing richer understandings of texts is genuinely rewarding.
