I just picked up the TE, PE, practice and assessment books for our new series so I could peruse them at home. I didn't even know if I was getting them or not, so I didn't get them earlier. Students begin on the 20th. How do you familiarize yourself with a new series and begin your planning? I don't usually use the series as I teach sped, but I'm trying to incorporate some of it this year. We have McGraw Hill Reading Wonders now. I'm supposed to have 1 hour for reading, 1 hour for math, 1 hour extra pull-out time, 1 hour inclusion, as well as time for writer's workshop.
