FAQ Friday: Is There a Scope and Sequence for Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™?

Q: Is there a scope and sequence for Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™?

A: Fountas & Pinnell Classroom is not a sequentially sequenced skills-based program, so there is no official scope and sequence. The Literacy Continuum serves as the curriculum underlying Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™. It creates coherence across classrooms and grade levels within your school. You will immediately notice, however, that The Literacy Continuum is not prescriptive. It doesn’t dictate a static scope and sequence of lessons. Rather, The Literacy Continuum is descriptive: it describes, with precision, the characteristics of texts and the observable behaviors and understandings of proficient readers, writers, and language users that you may choose to notice, teach, and support.
