Teaching Reading

At my school we use the Literacy by Design reading series. It has a lot of good components, but I am finding I have had to create and supplement a lot! The series has great comprehension organizers and end of the theme test, but that it is really all it has in terms of assessments. I have been making vocabulary and story assessments to go along with it, but I still feel like I need more. With having to meet Common Core, MAP, AND our State Standards, it is a lot to keep up with. How do you teach reading? Do you have a reading series you use, do you use novels, do you do Daily 5, do you create your own units? I would love to hear what works for you!!

If you happen to use LBD and are interesting in the assessments I created, you can check them out at my TPT store.

I hope everyone had a very, merry Christmas!!

  1. Thanks for stopping at my page! It looks like we can learn a lot from each other :)

    I've taught reading for 8 years and I don't think I've done the same thing two years in a row. I've tried many different methods and this year, I've just made up all of my own units. I've tried to throw in some common core stuff to get ready for it but it's definitely time consuming, expensive, and difficult at times!
