    Our district just adopted Treasures as our language arts curriculum and we'll start using it next year. Exciting! Anyone use Treasures? What do you like the best? The least? The in-between?

    We adopted Treasures 3 years ago and I am really happy with it. I feel like it has a great scope and sequence and it has a huge focus on phonemic awareness and phonics. It can move a little slow if you have above grade level kids, but for your at grade level and at risk students, it's perfect. The writing element to Treasures is a little lacking, but I use other resources for my writing instruction. Overall, I think you will be very pleased.

    I LOVE it. It's initially a bit overwhelming, but great once you get a rhythm going. I actually just put together a quick video of how I've organized all of my Treasures materials for my classroom organization blog. I'm planning on adding it next week.
