I am a first grade teacher and I just received this book in my mailbox today. It is an amazing resource with tons of appropriate activities and ideas for each reading level. It includes assessments, sight word lists, word work ideas and more. I highly recommend this resource to educators looking for an appropriate and meaningful way to integrate word study and phonics work into their guided reading group instruction.

As a reading interventionist & special education teacher this book is a must! I love how it takes the guess work out of word work & provides lessons for every level ! I can't wait to use it with my students!

I've been a Jan fan for years and have used everything I can get my hands on from her. This book is great for creating a school wide approach to deeper word study and phonics within guided reading. While some of this has been touched on in previous books, she goes into much more detail for each guided reading level. I love that she includes actual lesson plans as well as a progression of activities...even in the upper grades! The work that was done for transitional and fluent readers is amazing! I hope she's working on a guided writing book next!!!

This product is AMAZING! Not only does it meet my students where they are and provide me tools, resources, and strategies to move students forward and grow them, but the strategies are also fun and engaging for students too! The tools, resources, and books from Michelle Dufrense Literacy Footprints program are SO helpful when engaging in these word work routines! The books in the Literacy Footprints kit are complex text with ample opportunities for students to have exposure to the words we are learning in word study. No matter where your students are in their word study or phonics learning, this book has a starting place for you and a direction for you to take to grow your students! Its individualized learning in a clear format that makes sense to both teachers and students! :)
