What makes this different from other guided reading resources and websites?

Guided Readers has been developed by a veteran classroom teacher with more than 23-years of experience in reading instruction, to provide you with the most effective and rigorous resources to help you teach your students to become fluent, confident readers AND love to read in the process.

Our fiction books are beautifully illustrated by professional illustrators and our nonfiction books are created using the highest-quality and eye-catching photographs you can find!

Not only that, but ALL of our leveled readers are professionally leveled through our partnership with Fountas & Pinnell and

You won’t find any boring theories or ideas that don’t actually work in practice. This program is based on best practices in guided reading instruction and literacy development!  Implementing Guided Readers in your classroom will ensure exponential growth in your students’ reading skills (Results will vary).

I am a Reading/Curriculum Specialist, I need MORE than 36 student accounts for the digital reader.

Guided Readers allows 36 student accounts for each licence that is purchased on an account.  

However, we know that some Reading/Curriculum Specialists are servicing an entire school and have more than 36 students.  If you require more than 36 student accounts due to the nature of your teaching position, please email us at and we will assist you in assigning more student accounts to your license of Guided Readers. 

Please note that in order to gain access to additional student accounts, you must provide proof of your current teaching status and the number of students that you currently service from your school district administrator via written letter agreeing to the Terms of Use of Guided Readers and the understanding that sharing teacher licenses is strictly prohibited. 

My class has students with a huge range of reading abilities… will this work for me?

YES! Guided Readers will help you reach your Emerging Readers to your Fluent Readers.  Currently, Guided Readers has texts/resources for Guided Reading Levels A – Q. 

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.

How is this different to your Teachers Pay Teachers materials and Simply Skilled membership?

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.

Does this work with all curriculums, materials and guided reading approaches?

YES! Guided Readers is the perfect companion to any curriculum, and will assist you in following state standards with the rigorous, effective and streamlined approach you’ll learn to teaching guided reading.

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.
