I'm considering moving away from our basal system - Storytown. I don't have anything against it, but with Common Core, I'm not sure I'm giving my kiddos everything they need. This is my first year teaching 3rd grade, so I'm a little overwhelmed anyway. I want to take my time, research, and obtain materials. Of course, my district won't supply anything. I guess I'm looking for advice, suggestions, you name it!
