Help, we have just started using Reading Street this year and we will not get training for several weeks. We teach RLA for 90 min. I would appreciate suggestions for management. I know there is lots of stuff. I plan on doing centers, but we have just finished day 6 and I'm not ready to begin yet. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Website & Reading Street Group

We are also starting Reading Street this year, and won't get official training. If you have access to their website, there is a tutorial there.

Also, here on PT, look under Groups (on the top right) and there is a 2nd Grade Reading Street group! There are tons of good ideas there with additional website, etc. Let me know if you can't get to it.

Don't be worried about centers, I don't start them until at least a month into school. That gives me time to introduce and practice, practice, practice centers before they go on their own.

Good luck!

RS has so much that it can be completely overwhelming. However, once you look through it carefully, you will find some great ideas. I use the word work and grammar lessons every week (I give a spelling/grammar assessment every Friday). The kids love the Sing Along Book and the Phonics and Rhyme charts. I use them every week to reinforce the word work or the vocab words. I use the amazing words (although I usually just choose 3).
The leveled readers are great for guided reading groups. I organized them into files with the title, reading level and skill wriiten on each file. It is so helpful. Each book comes with a vocab sheet and skill sheet as well as a lesson plan.

As far as the stories in the anthology, I use them when they fit into my reader's workshop unit (ie. I use Iris and Walter during the realistic fiction unit). After the students have heard the story, I set it up in the listening center. I like the "Look Back and Write" activity and the retelling comic strip that comes after each story.

One of the best parts of the program is the "Fresh Reads". They are short stories with comprehension questions on the back. They come in three different levels so you can differentiate with them. Sometimes I use them for homework and other times for assessments.
I don't use the writing lessons at all.
I hope this helps get you started.

Do you mean it is the same story? I cannot find anything for The Twin Club, but have a mountain of resources for Iris and Walter.
