The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of Guided Reading Instruction on students’ reading achievement in third grade. The students’ fluency, accuracy, and comprehension were assessed using The Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment to determine the students’ instructional reading ability. Using the pretest data that was collected at the end of second grade, students were placed in four groups according to their instructional reading level. Students received Guided Reading instruction 4-5 days a week. During Guided Reading instruction, individual student reading needs were addressed through one-on-one conferring. The Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment was administered to students again midway through third grade to collect posttest data. Findings show that Guided Reading may have had a positive impact on students’ reading achievement.
