Student Books for Guided Reading Lessons

Flying Start to Literacy supports the systematic development of reading strategies and skills in young students. It begins with oral language, then builds vocabulary, increases phonemic awareness, builds letter-sound relationships, develops print knowledge, and promotes comprehension.

Flying Start to Literacy program contains:

  • 228 student titles organized into 7 Developmental Reading Stages and 30 Guided Reading Levels – paired fiction and informational texts.
  • 114 Lesson Plans on sturdy laminated cards (1 per pair of titles).
  • 114 Take-Home books, one for each pair of books.
  • 18 Vocabulary Starters in the Early Emergent Stage only.



An overview of the reading strategies for each book by stage can be seen on the Scope and Sequence charts. Reading Across the Curriculum charts detail text features and content vocabulary for each title. These can be found under the Teacher Resources tab.
