Levels R-Z will be added to the site over the next few months.

Each and every week, at least 20 new books and corresponding resources will be added to your Library Bookshelf.

Guided Readers is a brand-new membership site that focuses SOLEY on helping teachers instruct their students during guided reading instructional groups. Guided Readers provides printable leveled readers, lesson plans, and resources for teachers to download, print, and be ready to teach their students HOW to read!

If you are a long-term member of Simply Skilled Teaching Members Club (at least two years), you will see many of the books and materials you currently have. However, at least 50 NEW guided reading books will be added to the site every month. We will not be adding these resources to SST Members Club. Additionally, SST Members Club does not have access to our Digital Interactive Reader.

The resources on Guided Readers WILL NOT be accessible in my Teachers Pay Teachers shop.

Teachers have consistently told us that getting a grip on guided reading instruction felt overwhelming and difficult — and Guided Readers is here to give you a framework and a method to the madness that causes so many teachers to feel stressed out and majorly overwhelmed during their reading block. This program gives you the step-by-step system you need to create a rigorous, consistent plan of action to get your students reading with confidence.

What you’ll gain access to in Guided Readers is a consistent, streamlined framework for making guided reading work for you, no matter which curriculum or teaching material you’re already using.

You have 3 days to peruse the site, print out a few resources, and use the Digital Interactive Reader to see what is offered on Guided Readers. If after 3 days you feel that it is not a good fit for you, you may ask for a refund and cancel your membership. However, if you DOWNLOAD 3 or More resources from the site, you will NOT BE ELIGIBLE for a refund due to the instant and irrevocable access you gain to the materials.

Cancellations are immediate and you will lose all access to all of the resources in Guided Readers.

All memberships will renew automatically unless you go into your account settings and cancel your subscription.
