I love it!

But I don't use it to give/take away points. I mainly use it as a way to communicate with parents and to allow them to see what is going on in class daily. I post copies of important notices to go...

I'm not enjoying it.

The phonics section is weak and the literature for students is above their reading level. The writing component is weak, the teacher's guide is not really helpful, and it seems like I am doing more...

Jumbo ziplock bags

I didn't use book bags this year and boy, do I regret it! I don't care if there are only 40 days left in school, they are getting book bags after Spring Break! �� Jumbo ziplock bags with a cute label...

I agree with SeenTheLight.

Teach the algorithm, but I also teach that strategy of breaking down tens and ones, adding them separately, and then adding them together. Although, I don't break my decomposing down THAT much! I...

Wow, SoCalTeach.

That's really not cool. I was just commenting to a friend recently that the only one who is constantly learning are the teachers: constantly learning how to use new curriculum. We are told to use the...

Both

But if I have to choose, I would go with the physical product.

While I would take the time to print out pages from a digital version, I would NEVER take the time to digitize a physical book into...

Decisions, decisions....

My district is up for a new LA adoption this year and our choices are Benchmark Literacy and McGraw-Hill Wonders. Wonders is basically a reworking of Treasures, which we are currently using. Their...

I fit it in daily

I plan about 10-15 minutes a day on grammar. There are things the students need to receive direct instruction in, which can then be pointed out again during writing mini lessons. We are required to...

Genre Focus

The writing component of our adopted series simply isn't challenging enough. We do focus on a genre for about 2 1/2 months (narrative, informational, opinion) at a time. We received training in...

I do

I give weekly spelling tests. It's one of the simplest ways to give feedback to students and parents. Besides, our school has an annual Spelling Bee and it helps the children prepare for it.

Didn't care for it at all

The lesson video, while cute, didn't resonate with the children, so it ended up being wasted time. I found it much better to simply teach what the focus of the lesson was and then have some children...

Brilliant Idea!

Tokan6, that is a brilliant idea! There are more pages in that student work book than we will EVER use, and I don't want to have to photocopy anything else. Thank you!!!

Supplies

I work in a public school, and any money I spent on supplies is because it makes my life easier (snap pencil boxes instead of the cardboard open-top pencil boxes). I saw this on a different thread...

Reading Homework

I also do daily homework for the same reason. This past year, my reading homework didn't work well, because it was our first year with Treasures. Their decodeables are NOT consumable, so I didn't...

Classroom Library

I used to do it by reading levels, but about 2 years ago I switched to genres. It makes it easier for me to find a particular book when I want to use it for a read aloud.

I do have about 8...

EnVteach nailed it. Those are my exact concerns with the program. I am considering using more center activities rather than the pencil & paper part of the program next year.

Writing

I'm with Teacherwriter. It is NEVER to late to change up something if it isn't working. I was appalled by my children's writing, told them why, what my expectations were, and why I was changing our...

Aims

I am guessing, because we don't use AIMS; but in our reading program, our Winter Benchmark is also around 15 WPM, based on the 50th percentile. The 75th percentile is 30 WPM, which is what we...

Composition books / Notebooks

I'm like you; I tried one book per subject, but it was just too much to keep up with.

This year, I plan on using composition books for their writing notebook, 1-subject spiral bound notebook...
