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.



  • The text is completely mixed up

    By AlexB125
    The introduction refuses to go away, masking the prompts. Can't wait to see the app functional again!
  • Text is jumbled

    By Seriously nickname
    I can't read the app. The columns are all messed up. Text is on top of text. I also have prompting guide 2 and it looks and works beautifully! If someone can fix it, please do so I can use the resource instead of my print copy.
  • Overpriced

    By MEs Momma
    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!
  • Disappointing

    By Amy Terry
    I expected a lot more from heinemann. Not worth the money at all.

    By StellaDella
    This should be $.99. HEINEMANN, you should be ashamed. At the very least, at least add the content from the Continuum here. For $9.99, we deserve more than this. Waste of money.
  • Prompting guide

    By Haloike
    This was not a good purchase. It is vague, very general, and lacks rigor. Only gave it one star because it would not let me submit it if I didn't choose at least one. Very disappointed!
  • Good

    By CoyoteKid1110
    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.
  • The WORST!!!

    By LC Enthusiast
    This is the worst app I have ever purchased! It is not worth $.99, so the $10.00 fee is outrageous. Fountas and Pinnell and Heinemann need to reexamine their product and produce an app that can truly help teachers help children! Shame on them for charging anything for this! The information is minimal and basic.
  • Okay...

    By 4th grade teacher in vt
    Good start but I hope there is more to come! A tracking chart would be great...ability to progress monitor rate/fluency.
  • Great!

    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.
