Wonders Reading

Clinton Public Schools has adopted ELA curriculum, Wonders (grades 1-6), which contains recursive reading and writing each week. Contact Mrs. Hime if you would like to discuss, collaborate, or plan.

90 Minute Reading Block

Oklahoma's Reading Sufficiency Act requires a 90 minute reading block in Kindergarten through 3rd grade and recommends 90 minutes of reading instruction for upper elementary. The OSDE has published slides that explicitly break down the 90 minutes.

Measured Progress Released Items

Measured Progress has released teacher items that may be of some benefit to you. Within the items you will find a writing checklist, rubric, and writing samples.
