    HELP!

    Anyone out there who uses the Houghton Mifflin Reading Adventures/Delights program?

    I don't have a teachers manual yet (they are ordering me a set and I hope I have one by August 17th!). All I have are the student books.

    I need to know if there is a spelling component (with weekly spelling lists).

    I need to know if there is a grammar component.

    I need to know if there is a writing component.

    :dizzy::thanks:

    Yes, there are spelling, grammar, and writing components for each day!

    Thanks! I managed to find the spelling words on the Houghton Mifflin website.

    The "Focus On Activities" are those meant to start the school year? Or start the individual units?

    I believe the focus stuff is for beginning of the year.

    The writing component is much too easy (in my humble opinion). In fact, I completely skip over the writing section because it doesn't prepare the kids for the end-of-year district writing assessment.

    I do, however, really like the spelling/grammar sections for each week!

    P.S. I don't work in this particular district, but I use their website because they have the spelling words, high frequency words, and key vocabulary words for each story already typed up and ready to print! Check it out: http://www.smbsd.org/page.cfm?p=2414
