No More "Morning Meeting". . .Gotta Teach 'em to Read!

Well, the Morning Meeting was fun while it lasted. It was good in a lot of ways, but it was time to discontinue it, and begin immediately starting in seperate Reading Groups.
The school that I am now teaching at is a Reading First school. We use Harcourt Grade Level Strategic Intervention Series.

Have any of you used this with your special ed. students?


  1. Hey Sandy,

    To answer your question...Yes I have used harcourt series when I taught 2nd grade. I had students with disabilities when I taught 2nd grade but never used it when I was actually in the special education role! Last year, when I was a SPED teacher, the students used more of a novel and balanced literacy approach. I strongly believe the best way to teach reading is in small groups on students instructional reading level.

    I hope that helps!! Good luck, I can't wait to hear how your students are doing!!

  2. Did you use the Intervention series or just the regular clasroom series?
