    Out of curiosity's sake, is there any standards-based reading curriculum that integrates art or a more hands-on approach to learning reading at the upper-elementary level?

    My school uses a basal textbook and so have other schools I've worked at. They're boring, but they do the job. I try to supplement with art and fun, interactive games and activities whenever possible, but it's not a part of the provided curriculum. It's always piece-meal put together.

    Are there any different programs out there that are actually engaging and hands-on?

    I've seen different interactive programs that include games and inquiry-based projects for math and science but nothing too exciting for language arts.
