To teach literacy is to change lives


Designed by literacy experts Jan Richardson and Michèle Dufresne, each Literacy Footprints kit includes teaching tools and components for K–6 Learners. Each book in Literacy Footprints is paired with a lesson card based on The Next Step Forward in Guided Reading. Lessons include word study activities, comprehension strategies, guided writing, and more.
