Harcourt Storytown Resources

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hi! I saw in an earlier post -March 08- someone had collected links for specific grade level resources for the Harcourt StoryTown series. They didn't have 3rd grade yet, and I haven't found any further posts by that user. Has anyone found good resources for 3rd grade for this series? We have found that our workbooks repeat themselves- there are identical pages in spelling and reading practice books, and I would like to find something more interactive. So far the website has been disappointing.
Thanks!
Barb

These sites have been helpful to me in 2nd grade. I think there are home pages that will direct you tho third grade resourses on most. The last link is just priceless for adding additional centers activities. I know the second grade center cards/activities that come with Storytown get really redundant after a while. Hope this can help!

Just a quick note...not about links. I think the reason there are duplicates of Spelling and Grammar in the Practice Book is that some schools only get the Practice Book. I have been using Storytown in 4th for 2 years, and am beginning to dislike the Grammar book altogether.

Thanks, Eydie, for posting the links - I am going to go exploring now!

without having the subscription?

I am a teacher in small charter school with 58 students total in the school, so affording the whole StoryTown package is not happening! We piece together what we can get and we don't use worksheets for the most part.

Using eBay, Amazon marketplace, Alibris, etc, the school has picked up 5 texts each for 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade and some leveled readers grades 1-3. I can print out the leveled readers and decodable books online to use in my groups.

Using Google and links from PT, I have found several teacher and district websites that link to thinkcentral, so I have access to the texts online and the grammar, practice and spelling books for several grades, as well as the decodable books, leveled readers and the intervention central books.

I use StoryTown in my small reading groups (along with Reading AtoZ) and would like to gain access to any lesson plans, graphic organizers, FCAT/SAT10 practice and the weekly tests for the text, as well as, for the leveled readers and the decodable books. Also, ideas for differentiated instruction using StoryTown.

Anyone have any links to these resources on the thinkcentral website from a teachers webpage or parent link?
