    Basal

    We use the basal, but pick and choose which stories we want to read according to what we are studying in other areas. We also do guided reading and lots of AR. I feel out kids get a very well rounded program, and for us in Texas, the focus for 3rd grade--which I teach--is to pass the reading portion of the TAKS test. If they don't pass, they don't go on to 4th. This year we had 96% passing the 1st try, and of those, 51% were commended which means they didn't miss more than 2 questions on the test. This is quite an accomplishment, but I think it comes from doing lots of different things in reading, not just sticking to the basal or any other one method for that matter.
