Literacy Footprints is a Guided Reading system designed for classroom teachers, intervention, ELL, Special Education teachers, and support staff who are teaching children to read and write. Each of the kits (Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, Third Grade, Fourth Grade, Fifth/Sixth Grade, and the Intervention Partner) contains sequenced, high-quality leveled texts in a variety of genres. Students will encounter traditional tales, realistic fiction, fantasy, and informational text. The lesson cards that accompany the books follow Jan Richardson’s Next Step lesson format (Richardson, 2009 and 2016). Each lesson includes word study and phonics instruction based on The Next Step Forward in Word Study (Dufresne and Richardson 2019). Each kit also includes component materials designed by Jan Richardson and Michèle Dufresne to consistently support teachers throughout the lessons.

Lesson Cards

  • Accompany each book.
  • Our lesson plans are designed to engage students in literacy learning while they read books and write stories. The activities instill confidence in students as they learn important early literacy behaviors, concepts of print, and letters and sounds.

Our Books

  • Pair clear, well-chosen fonts with wide spacing between words, thoughtful line breaks, and supportive photography and illustrations.
  • Award-winning nonfiction provides motivation for additional learning.

Our goal is simple.

We want all students
to become proficient readers
who just can’t wait to read
another book.
