Suddenly homeschooling your kids? We’ve got your back.

Reading is one of the most important and difficult skills your child must learn -- and take-home packets only go so far.


That’s why guided Readers is here to help parents like you; with easy access to virtual lessons in reading, vocabulary, comprehension, and critical thinking that your kids can complete on their own.

A Message from Me to You! Parents at home who are currently struggling with what to teach and HOW to teach!

Guided Readers will help you navigate these unchartered waters of home reading instruction.

Here's how our daily Guided Readers lessons work:

Step 1: Create your child's account & select their reading level (We will help you figure that out.)

After you register for Guided Readers, you can tailor your child’s experience based on their reading level, so they’re only assigned the books meant for them.

Step 2: Log in with a 2-picture password

This serves to protect your account, and make it easy for even your youngest at-home student to access their lessons unassisted!

Step 3: Your Child's Lesson Begins

Inside the Guided Readers platform, they can read, listen to the books being read, record themselves reading aloud (to help with fluency and comprehension), take online quizzes, and enjoy activities around phonics, word work, comprehension, writing, vocabulary, and more.

FAQ's

What makes this different from other guided reading resources and websites?

Guided Readers has been developed by a veteran classroom teacher with more than 23-years of experience in reading instruction, to provide you with the most effective and rigorous resources to help you teach your children to become fluent, confident readers AND love to read in the process.

Our fiction books are beautifully illustrated by professional illustrators and our nonfiction books are created using the highest-quality and eye-catching photographs you can find!

Not only that, but ALL of our leveled readers are professionally leveled through our partnership with Fountas & Pinnell and Lexile.com

You won’t find any boring theories or ideas that don’t actually work in practice. This program is based on best practices in guided reading instruction and literacy development!  Implementing Guided Readers at home will ensure exponential growth in your child's reading skills (Results will vary).

Can I really just plop my kid down at the computer and let them learn on their own?

YES! When you first log on to Guided Readers, you will want to acclimate yourself to the portal and get used to how the technology works.  

We suggest working with your child for one-two session so they understand how to sign on, navigate the platform, and complete the activities. 

Once they have an understanding of how the program works, they can work completely independently! 

Of course, if parents want to work with his/her child on the lessons, we have provided a Parent Guide for each book on the site to help parents work through the lesson with his/her child and provide discussion prompts to assess their child's comprehension of the story. 

Will this help my child keep up with their school’s curriculum?

YES! Absolutely! If your child was currently in school, these are the types of lessons and activities they would engage in during small group guided reading instruction. 

Guided Readers was created BY TEACHERS with over 23 years teaching reading to children. We are experts in understanding how children learn to read and have added all of our knowledge, expertise, and experience within the Guided Readers program to ENSURE that your child not only progresses in their reading development while at home, but will experience exponential growth in their reading abilities. (Results will vary.)

I have kids at different reading levels... will this work for all of us?

YES! Absolutely!  Guided Readers provides books from Levels A - Q to ensure that your children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade can continue their reading instruction at home.

How do I know what level my child is reading at?

This is a great question. We suggest you ask your child's teacher what level they are currently reading at to give you a baseline on where to have your children begin on Guided Readers. 

However, if that is not readily available information you can use these guidelines to help you make an informed decision on where to start your child within the Guided Readers program:

If your child is in Kindergarten and an average reader, we suggest working with books on Levels A - D. 

If your child is in Kindergarten and an advanced reader, we suggest working with books on Levels D-H.

If your child is in first grade and an average reader, we suggest working with books from Levels D - I. 

Children in first grade are typically expected to exit first grade reading on a Level I. 

If your child is in second grade and an average reader, we suggest working with books from Levels I - N.

Children in second grade are typically expected to exit second grade reading on a Level M/N. 

If your child is in third grade and an average reader, we suggest working with books from Levels M - Q.

Children in third grade are typically expected to exit third grade reading on a Level Q.
