Teacher Guides and Lesson Plans


We offer free, high-quality Teacher's Guides for more than 900 of our books!

Our Teacher's Guides and Lesson Plans are developed by professional educators and offer extensive teaching ideas, curricular connections, and activities that can be adapted to many different educational settings. 

LEE & LOW BOOKS recognizes the demands on educators’ time and understands how critical efficient, high-impact lesson planning is to a successful classroom. We are honored to support educators in preparing the next generation of readers, thinkers, and global citizens. 

Our Teacher Guides and Lesson Plans are always FREE to use online or download. Many of our curriculum and literacy nonprofit partners have also shared their comprehensive, expert lessons based on our books.
