Beth-I also want to thank you for all of the time you have spent helping other teachers. I have been using some of your fantastic ideas for the past 2 years. I also need to stay with my district's guidelines and I do need to use the basal readers and I cannot use the Reader's Workshop in my classroom; however, I was hoping that I can incorporate some or most of the reader's workshop activities along with the basal reader. The reading series that we are using has wonderful leveled readers and I am thinking that I can also use these books to create a "reader's workshop" in my classroom. Any suggestions that may help me?
