Thank you for all of your posts and blogs. I am a follower of your blogs and am SO glad I found your website! It's provided me with so much valuable information that have shared with my colleagues. I am currently implementing RW in my 1st grade classroom. However, it is my first year teaching and it is very difficult because I am one of the only teachers currently trying out this format (I have a friend using it in a higher grade as well). I really don't have anyone to go to for advice on RW, and I know other teachers are concerned to switch because of standardized testing scores being so great the past few years.What do you use for Guided Reading? Our school's library is rather small and does not have enough resources for me to pull from each week. I'm currently using the Basal books for guided reading, as that is all I have to use. What would you suggest? Also, how do I explain to other teachers, that our test scores can still be great, even if we use a different format for teaching reading. I truly believe in RW and do NOT want to use the basal curr. Thanks for all you do! You're awesome!
