    Don't get overwhelmed!

    I LOVe Open Court but it can be overwhelming. I have been teaching it for about 17 years and when we adopted the new series 2 years ago I kind of felt the same way you are feeling. There is a lot of components with the series. I use most everything that they gave us and tried to stick to the program since it really does work. The decodable books can get overwhelming at times but stick to them. You will see such good results. You need to have a workshop/meeting with your parents so they understand what you will be doing and where you will need their help. I make my read every night. We keep our decodables in a ziplock bag and they go back and forth each day until they finish the reading unit and then they can leave the books at home. I will be glad to answer any other questions you might have if you want to e-mail me.
