New Curriculum Pieces

Who doesn't love new goodies?! As teachers we are always looking for the newest curriculum piece that is going to engage students for success. The great news is there are several new curriculum pieces coming down the pipe to help us with this very task. The district has invested in the best of the best by the gurus in our field. This year we will be learning how to use Lucy Calkin's Units of Study in Writing, Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention and Fountas & Pinnell Word Study Bundles. Did you notice the names here? Calkins, Fountas & Pinnell. It doesn't get any better in our field. Absolutely, excited to being working with these materials and tracking student success as a result of using them.
