It is so great to have you Blogging again! I found your website several years ago and have been able to use so many ideas to make my classroom and instruction better. Thank you for that! You have inspired not only me, but many others at my school as well.
I do have one question about your curriculum. We are currently in the process of writing our school's reading curriculum. Over the last few years we have stepped away from our Basal and started to use more of a reading workshop model. Many of the teachers are using The Daily Five and CAFE to help them while we write the reading curriculum. What format did your school use to document your curriculum? Did you write specific mini-lessons for each unit? Do the units follow a specific order?
Also, I see that you use the F&Ps assessment. We do also. We were trying to use the Continuum to help us write curriculum. Did your district do that?
Sorry for the long post! Thanks again for all the time you put into sharing with others!
