Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™
The future of literacy education is HERE!
Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ is built on a transformative vision of what literacy education can be: a shared commitment to meaningful, effective, responsive teaching that ensures the right of every student to lead a LITERATE LIFE. Every child has the right to grow up literate as a member of a dynamic learning community that values the richness of linguistic, ethnic, and cultural diversity. All children deserve access to an authentic, rich, and diverse text base—one that creates lifelong readers who have the power of choice, the ability to make decisions about books, the freedom to have opinions, the opportunity to think critically, and the pleasure of reading every day.
What makes Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ transformative?
Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ (FPC) is a cohesive, multi-text approach to literacy instruction for ALL students in grades PreK–6 designed to support wholegroup, small-group, and independent learning. By now, you’re likely implementing or considering the implementation of FPC in your PreK–3 classrooms and are wondering what resources to turn to for your grade 4–6 students until those materials are available in the Fall of 2019. We know you have many choices when choosing a literacy system that’s right for your school community, but what sets FPC apart from other literacy systems is transformative, and well worth the wait.
