Ready Readers

Many schools purchased these readers several years ago to be used as part of reading intervention programs. We no longer have the reading program for which we originally purchased these. However, we have resorted the books into guided reading levels and now use them as part of our guided reading program. If you have these available (ours were sitting unused in a storage closet) and wish to level them for guided reading (with either Fountas and Pinnel levels or DRA levels), you can find the level for each book at this site:

If you are interested in purchasing the books you can order them from:

I have created short follow up activities to accompany each story for children to complete independently.
