The school that I'm at does not use basal readers. I am very happy about this; however, I am trying to map out a rough idea of my curriculum. Since this is my first year, I am having some difficulty. I figured that I would start the year out with friendship (use Frog and Toad). Next, I thought about family. Since I am able to use any books, does anyone have a reading unit idea and/or great book idea?
