Thoughtful Thursday 4
I’ve been thinking about our new reading series a lot the last few weeks. We adopted Journeys 2014 Common Core for the next 6 years and I’m just wondering if you use it and how it looks in your classroom.
This is the first time our Kindergarten’s have officially adopted a reading series that we need to follow with fidelity, so I’m a little nervous because I’m not a “follow the basal” type teacher. We have adopted a reading series in the past but it’s either been just as a resource or to use a specific part of the series (phonemic awareness).
I will admit that I really like the texts (both trade book and big book size) that come with the series, but was disappointed that there wasn’t more in the way of AimsWeb/Dibles practice (nonsense words) in it.
I’m going to give it a chance and see what happens. 🙂
