About the Fountas-Pinnell Leveling System

Fountas & Pinnell logoThe Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment Systems are accurate and reliable tools to identify the instructional and independent reading levels of all students and document student progress through one-on-one formative and summative assessments.

The Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System is employed in many area schools - including the District 401 Elmwood Park Public Schools.

This page is intended to be a guide to books within each level that the Library owns. However, unlike our Early Reader Collection (Levels A-L), the Library does not individually label each book by the Fountas & Pinnell leveling system and some leveling methods may vary. Please see a Kids Librarian if you need assistance with the F&P System.

Click on the level above to find book suggestions within that level, then click on the book to check its availability in the SWAN Online Catalog. Or if you have a book in mind and you are wondering what level it is, then try searching Scholastic Book Wizard to find the level. Or ask a librarian for assistance.
