We are currently using the Journeys series. I teach fourth graders and we absolutely detest the helter-skelter way the the program is constructed. The graphic organizers are good on covering reading skills, but we don't think this series provides enough comprehension work with the story itself. In Virginia, we use our own Standards of Learning and Journeys does not ask the kinds of questions our students will encounter on the test.
Except for spelling and language, we are making skills work on our own. The school system tried to save money by not purchasing the Write-in readers (which was the only thing I liked about the series) so struggling readers continue to struggle.
