Our resources don't follow a prescriptive curriculum. They are meant to be flexible so you can use them to differentiate your instruction based on your instructional goals.
 
You can use the resources for whole group, small group, and one-on-one instruction.
 
There are two ways to find the right resources for your instructional needs:
  1. Use the Resource Wizard to identify the books you want to teach with. We'll provide you with a list of mini lessons and activities available for the books you choose.
  2. Use the filters in our Resource Library to filter the resources according to comprehension skill, strategy, guided reading level, grade level, genre, CCSS, etc. We'll provide you with a list of books you can use and paired resources matched to your instructional goals.

The BookPagez resources pair with books that are widely available.
 
We recommend that you take an inventory of the books in your school and classroom libraries because, chance are, many of the titles are already on your shelves.
 
You can visit your local book store, used book store, and your library.
 
You can also find all of the books available for purchase through Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, and through other large retailers.
 
Many of the titles in our resource library are also available on GetEpic.com or through OpenLibrary.org.

Yes, you can use BookPagez even if you don’t know your students' reading levels.
 
The importance of knowing a child’s reading level is based on your goals for instruction.
 
At BookPagez, we recommend you follow a gradual release of responsibility approach, also known as the “To, With, and By Framework for Learning”. That means you will spend some time teaching new skills to your students, working on developing skills with your students, and giving your students space to practice skills by themselves.
 
You should use a book slightly above a student's reading level when you’re teaching new concepts or working on skills with your students.
 
You should use a book at or slightly below a student's reading level when a student is working independently.
 
In the end, it’s most important for your students to discover new books, comprehend what they read, and enjoy reading. So try not to focus too heavily on a child’s reading level. Instead, enjoy the time you spend reading with your students and feel confident that the work you do with the BookPagez resources will help your students develop the skills they need to be a successful readers.

You can use the Reading Level Assessments Guide located in the Teacher Tools section of our resource library to assess your students' oral reading fluency and comprehension skills.
 
Please remember that reading level assessments are not always black and white.  
 
Your students' comprehension will fluctuate based on his or her prior knowledge of the text, and the oral reading fluency will be affected by knowledge of specific vocabulary in a text.  All assessments are intended to inform instruction and book selection.  
 
So don't worry is some of your students seem to fall between two levels.  The levels are not drastically different and are only meant to function as a way to track reading growth and progress.

The instructional resources available on BookPagez are research based and follow work published by Teachers College Reading and Writing Project at Columbia University and the work published by Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell.
 
For further reading on the research used to inform the BookPagez resources please refer to the following books:
  • Guided Reading, Fountas and Pinnell
  • Teaching for Deep Comprehension, Linda Dorn
  • Reading with Meaning, Debbie Miller
  • Teaching for Comprehension and Fluency, Fountas and Pinnell
  • The Next Steps in Guided Reading, Jan Richardson

Classroom Spotlight
How one Reading Interventionist uses BookPagez to teach critical thinking skills and support comprehension

"When I encountered Bookpagez, years ago, I was amazed at the quality of the resource. Here, was a site that had taken the best in children’s literature and created an archive of comprehension strategies embedded in explicit lesson plans that were there for teachers to examine and download into their own self-created files right on the site.

In the world of teaching reading, especially reading intervention which often has no prescribed curriculum, I felt like I had hit the instructional jackpot. Everything I had learned while earning my master's degree in language and literacy on my way to becoming a reading specialist was included in the lesson plans for each book."
