F&P Leveled Literacy Intervention System

Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention

I spent some time today learning about the Leveled Literacy Intervention System by Fountas and Pinnell.  I would like to use this as a part of RTI and in special education.  I would love to hear from you if you are familiar with it!  I really liked that one day students are taught at the instructional level, the next at their independent level.  There is ongoing assessment which is great.  It seemed very teacher-friendly.
What do you think?


  1. I've never heard of it, but Fountas and Pinnell know what they're doing so it must be pretty good, huh?

  2. Those two know what they are doing! I was impressed with the system.

  3. I haven't seen this one, but am interested to hear more about it. I just started following you. Stop by and visit my blog sometime ~ I write about using books in the classroom.

  4. I use it with my tier 2 students. Actually all of our 1st and 2nd use it. I love it! We have found that the smaller the group the better and sometimes (due to time) we have to leave off the second word work piece. The kids love the books and love taking them home. If you have specific questions just let me know...I've been using it for a year and a half.

  5. Thank you, Jen! I needed to hear from someone that is actually using the kits. I will check back with you if I have questions!

  6. I use it and love! My kids love the books, also! There are several character series in each set and plenty of nonfiction! Great resources and assessments included, too!

    1. Thank you Laura! I am so glad the kids love the books. It helps me to know that this will be a useful resource!

  7. I am glad you posted this. I have wondered about this kit also. Will be interested to see what all you find out about it.
