I know you have briefly touched on this subject before but I am still scratching my head on basal readers. Our county has an adopted basal reading program. In short we are required to use it. Any ideas on using it without spending valuable authentic reading time on it? I love the workshop approach but I still find myself reverting back to the basal for grades. How will I still get grades for the report cards when we use the A, B, C letter grading system? Thanks for all of your amazing ideas and excitement for teaching!
