Reading Programs that Work?

Our district is looking into a new reading program. Do you have any suggestion of programs that cover the standards? We have an old MCGraw Hill Program and 100 Book Challenge. The McGraw Hill is 15 years old and doesnt cover 1/2 of the standards.

Hello,
My school was also in search of a new reading program that met the standards. Through my research I found a great computer program called Study Island. The program was implemented for one year and caused our reading scores to increase. Study Island meets the standards of each state perhaps this is something your district can look into.

Reading Street

We implemented Reading Street last year and our average test scores on MAP have increased dramatically when compared to the years before. It covers EVERYTHING from conventions, phonics, phonemic awareness, guided reading, and differentiated instruction. Something to look at.

Our school district implemented both Study Island and Accerelated Reader programs about 3 years ago. They were effective in raising reading state achievement scores with our school system. I believe by implementing both programs they have been a great advantage to our students. These progams together supply students with the opportunties to improve their reading skills.

Our school district moved from Accelerated Reader programs to Literacy Lane three years ago. Our school then decided to use both in grades 1 through 3. Both programs have worked together to meet all of the needs of various types of readers.
