FAQ Friday: Is Writing Instruction Incorporated in Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™?

Q: Is writing instruction incorporated in Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ (FPC)?

A: Writing is integrated into all of the following FPC instructional contexts: 

  • Guided Reading (in the Writing about Reading section) 
  • Shared Reading (in the Responding to the Text section) 
  • Interactive Read-Aloud (in the Responding to the Text section) 
  • Independent Reading (in the Writing about Reading prompts) 

The Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Continuum contains a Writing continuum, which can be used as a planning document and a way of assessing writing progress. As with all of the continua, the behaviors described represent goals for a year of instruction.
