The Fountas & Pinnell Prompting Guide 1 is an easy-access tool that you can use to enhance your teaching power in guided reading lessons; intervention lessons; shared reading; independent reading; reading and writing conferences; and dictated, independent, and interactive writing. If you are a classroom teacher, reading specialist, literacy teacher, Reading Recovery teacher, or literacy coach, you can use this app as a ready reference while working with students in several instructional contexts.

Fountas and Pinnell have compiled a comprehensive collection of precise language to use when teaching, prompting for, and reinforcing effective strategic actions in reading and writing. Based on your observations and analysis of students’ reading and writing behaviors, you can select the specific language that will work best for children as they build their literacy processing systems. The language in this guide will improve the reader’s or writer’s ability to solve problems and use strategic actions independently.

I almost didn't purchase this app due to the one unfavorable review. As an assistant teacher who uses F & P every school day, I really hoped this app would work. I decided to give it a try after seeing that the support tab connects as it should. I am very happy with the app. It works well and having the prompts and information so available is a big help during my guided reading groups.

This is the same prompting guide you can get from Heinemann. Quicker and easier than the hard copy. This is NOT an app. Heinemann should have put it in the bookstore. It is meant as a guide- nothing more. Great for teachers looking for a resource to help guide children in reading strategies during conferences or guided reading.

It is has some useful info for my kindergarten class easily accessible but not worth the price at all. (I could type a cheat sheet from the books) It now says part 1- does that mean there will be future parts? I hope they do not expect another 9.99 for them!
