It's Our One-year Anniversary!!

Last August, Fountas & Pinnell Literacy™ relaunched fountasandpinnell.com, a daily retreat for teachers, literacy leaders, and district administrators to reflect, recharge, and redefine their literacy instruction. Since then, nearly 40k members from 129 countries have joined. Like Fountas and Pinnell themselves, these members are joined together by the belief that achieving substantial school-wide growth is a real possibility if we take the journey together. Thanks to you, fountasandpinnell.com has become so much more than a website. It is a COMMUNITY.

"I LOVE the Fountas & Pinnell Community!!! There are so many great webinar offerings, suggested new professional literature, Fountas & Pinnell Classroom (OMG! I can hardly wait! I feel like a kid at Christmas!), Daily Lit Bits... Just a treasure trove of great stuff." ~Amy Brusvold, Reading Specialist, Thorp, WI 

We wanted to take a moment to pause and celebrate all we've achieved together this year!

Blogs: Each week, we feature a new blog aimed to spark conversation about important topics in education and inform customers on product updates or new resources.  This year, we posted blogs on a large range of topics from the importance of using a level only as a teacher's tool, not a child's label, to the popular Ask Meli blog where Meil, the dog from books featured in LLI and the forthcoming Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Guided Reading Collection, answers questions from her fans!

Daily Lit Bits: We have posted 256 Daily Lit Bits, which are short, morsels of insight from Fountas and Pinnell intended to sharpen your practice, and invoke professional conversations. Share these bits of wisdom with your colleagues and get the dialogue started!

Discussion Board Posts: Since the launch of fountasandpinnell.com, there have been 700 new discussion posts added to the Discussion Board! This means our members are actively utilizing this valuable tool where educators can go to get their Fountas & Pinnell Literacy™ questions answered by trained consultants in a timely manner.

Webinar: Over the last year, we recorded 12 live webinars hosted by Fountas and Pinnell. These webinars offer members the opportunity to expand their knowledge on critical topics in education. And if you miss the webinars, you can access the recording in the Resource Library on fountasandpinnell.com

Resource Library: The Resource Library on fountasandpinnell.com contains 267 NEW documents and videos meant to extend teacher expertise. And those are just the new ones we've added over the past 12 months! 

Thank you for joining us on this journey! Stay tuned for more content, more webinars, and new features coming to the Community this year that will expand members' chance to reflect, recharge, and refine literacy instruction even further!
