    Hi everyone! I was just curious to find out what reading series everyone is using. Our school is in the process of choosing a new basal reading program and the teachers are the ones actually reviewing and choosing the new series. Our k-2 teachers are using the Saxon phonics program and would like to have a series that best correlates with this program. Is anyone using Saxon and if so what basal do you use with it? Thanks.

    We use the Reading Workshop model and have no adopted texts. A lot of our program is self-selected books. I would LOVE to have an adopted text for one, but our district isn't going that way i guess.

    We use McGraw Hill and am pretty happy with it. Like any series, it has it good points and its bad points.

    Houghton Mifflin, supplemented with Standards Plus. As if we need another supplement. We already have so many "supplemental" programs for reading, math, science, and probably for our soon-to-be-adopted Social Studies program (votes still being counted!). ;-D

    Scott Foresman, Reader's Guides, and Writer's Express. We also pull in various other resources including a vocabulary program that is extremely valuable to us called Wordly Wise.

    We use Harcourt Trophies. There are things that I like and many areas I feel need to be supplemented.

    Our district has adopted Harcourt Trophies, also. But I don't really like basals, so I only use it occasionally. Luckily I have the option to use materials besides the text.
