The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of guided reading instruction on students’ reading achievement in second grade. The Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment Kit was used to determine the students’ independent reading ability. The students’ fluency, accuracy, and comprehension were assessed to evaluate their reading level. After the pretest data was collected, small group guided reading instruction was implemented a few times a week to address their independent reading level needs. The Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment Kit was used again to collect posttest data after the seven-week guided reading instructional intervention. Findings shows that there was no statistically significant difference in students’ reading growth, but more students did make improvements.
