Books and Text Passages
Get your students excited about reading with culturally relevant, professionally leveled books and text passages
One of the challenges that teachers face is finding engaging, relevant material for their students to read. An effective Guided Reading program incorporates a multitude of engaging books and text passages, written at various lengths and reading levels. Guided Readers features thousands of fiction and nonfiction books and text passages (available digitally and in a printable format) that cover a variety of interest areas and incorporate social-emotional learning competencies, getting students excited about reading. Even though there are thousands of texts to choose from, Guided Readers makes it easy for teachers to quickly create digital bookshelves for students that are relevant to students’ reading levels and interests. Each book and text passage is also accompanied by an easy-to-follow lesson plan, and new books and text passages are being added each month.
Professionally Leveled Books
Students and teachers alike will love both the professionally illustrated fiction books, as well as the nonfiction books that incorporate eye-catching photographs and engage young readers in a variety of subjects. All books are available in both a digital and printable format, and thanks to a partnership with Fountas & Pinnell and Lexile.com, all books are professionally leveled. Many books and text passages are also written at multiple reading levels, helping teachers more easily differentiate instruction, and giving students more options when choosing what to read.

“I have noticed with Guided Readers, the mix of fiction and nonfiction keeps their interest. There are also topics that they find interesting, or that I can connect to the seasons or other curriculum we are teaching.”
