Fountas and Pinnell Update Guided Reading Levels

I get updates from Heinemann Publishing because we are great friends....actually, most of you know that I am addicted to professional books and all, so I get updates on new books so that I can send them my money.  Anyway, I got an update today letting me know that Fountas and Pinnell have issued a new 'standard' for the guided reading levels in comparison to grade levels.  You can read the article yourself HERE. The change came about in order to make sure that reading and comprehension are DEEPER, just like the expectations of common core.


  1. Thanks for sharing Jenn! Because our kids are already pretty high, I think this is something I want to share with our staff!


  2. Thanks for the info. I'll be sure to pass this on to my team.

  3. My district adjusted the expected F & P levels in anticipation of the Common Core. I am glad to see that the adjustments Fountas & Pinnell made are pretty much in line with my district. I am hoping our parents understand the changes, because with the higher levels, we have students who were on grade level readers, and now they will need to be in reading support.

    Thanks for sharing!
