Facebook Groups that Every Reading Teacher Should Join

Facebook Groups are an incredible opportunity for educators to connect and collaborate with teachers across the world. Check out these Facebook Groups that you should join in order to enhance your literacy instruction!

Facebook groups are an amazing way to collaborate with other educators around the country and even the world! In these groups, teachers can ask questions, share resources, and celebrate successes together. While classroom teachers benefit from the collaborative groups, they're especially helpful to reading specialists. Many times, there are only one or two reading specialists in a building which makes it difficult to collaborate with others. These groups provide an opportunity to connect with others who understand our job expectations and struggles. 


Here are Facebook Groups that will help you to enhance your reading instruction by collaborating with others.

The Reading Roundup Facebook Group

I created this group to support teachers in ALL aspects of balanced literacy. It is a newer group that continues to grow each day, so new members are always welcome! Don't be shy - feel free to share resources or ask questions at any time!

The Reading and Writing Strategies Book Community

While this group was created to continue the learning of the Reading Strategies Book and Writing Strategies Book by Jennifer Serravallo, you do not have to own the books to benefit from the community. Teachers use this group as a way to share strategies that have worked for them, mentor texts, and other resources.

Disrupting Thinking - Why How We Read Matters - Book Club

If you haven't read Disrupting Thinking by Kylene Beers & Robert E. Probst yet, stop everything you're doing and go get the book! It is by far the BEST professional book I've read in a long time. The group is intended to facilitate discussion around the strategies in the book but additional ideas are also shared among members.

Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Community

Irene Fountas & Gay Su Pinnell are balanced literacy gurus! Members are invited to "discuss what works and what challenges you face, ask questions, tell stories, and share what inspires you. The hope and purpose of this group is to help each other collaborate on a deeper understanding of all things Fountas and Pinnell."

Second Story Window

Primary Teachers this group is for you! There are other groups for specific grade levels, but I like that this one includes all primary grades. Specialists who work with students in grades K-3 will also find helpful tips and resources in this group.
