    No more 'story of the week'??

    I am a first year teacher. I've got a fairly advanced group of third graders (all but one passed state testing in October...hooray!!). My principal is strongly encouraging me to do away with the 'story of the week' from the reading series. My kiddos truly would be ok with reading the story one day and testing over it the next. Unfortunately, being a first year teacher, the reading series provides me with a nicely laid out structure that I wouldn't get from pulling materials of my own. I have implemented literature circles to bring in higher level reading materials. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. Any suggestions or ideas on how reading is run in your classrooms???
