Our district adopted this program this year. The teachers absolutely HATE it! The mini-lessons don't reach the children, and we feel at the end of the week that we have taught nothing. The children are completely bored. It gives us no room for creativity nor to add our own lessons. Our students come to us substantially below grade level, and this program assumes all students are on grade level. It teaches way above their reading level (whole group). Students are not excited about reading, and short of a song and dance, it's all I can do to keep their attention during whole group (which never used to be a problem). The work load has greatly increased, as well.
