Clip to ScrapBook #2

Oh. My. Gosh! My last district adopted Reading Street, and it was AWFUL!!! I left the district before they adopted the CCSS, so I don't know if it aligns well with that, but the basal itself was hated by all of us that used it. (Granted, I taught 4th in my last district... If I'm not mistaken, the lower primaries liked it a little more than we did.)

I've heard good things about Journeys, but mostly that it works well with the Daily 5 plans. I've never actually seen the reading series, though. As for Wonders, I didn't know they were still publishing that one. Lol We use Houghton Mifflin (which is not on your list, I know), and I dislike it a lot too. I'm having the same problem with HM in first as you mentioned that you were having with Trophies in you Kinder class. The tests in HM are based on skills and strategies, though. I like that about it.
