Instructional Read Aloud Books for K-6 Students

Hello, Families.

We are so excited about our Fountas & Pinnell Reading Curriculum! The students are exposed to tons of powerful and engaging stories. They take part in discussions and writing activities around important themes like kindness, compassion, equality, and perseverance, as well as a range of genres and authors while building their reading skills. You may have been lucky enough to take part in some of these stories and rich conversations while your child is learning at home in the hybrid setting. Our students love these diverse stories and we are excited about their growth as thoughtful, empathetic, and critical readers.

We wanted to point your attention to the Fountas & Pinnell Instructional Read Aloud (IRA) book lists for your child’s grade level so that you can reference what they’ll be reading in class. Links to each list are provided below and also available on the Teaching & Learning page of the BSD website.
