Our Mission

 

As standardized tests become more rigorous, literacy rates have actually decreased and being able to keep students engaged gets more and more challenging.  The urgency to find a way to address these needs has never been more real.  At Watson Works, the resources we create are designed to be fun and engaging, yet still incorporate the discipline needed to teach kids the essentials.  Learning should be enjoyable, and we strive to make that part of each product we make. We are committed to providing a system of continued learning best practices, translation to tools for teachers, and designing and implementing communication of these new ideas and resultsto schools.Because we are Texas educators at heart, all of our resources are aligned to the TEKS; however, they are also aligned to the CCSS to help serve other teachers around the country, as well.

We are a team of educators and professionals with over 75 years of combined experience working together to create quality resources just for you!

Watson Works Phonics and Spelling 

When creating the Watson Works Phonics and Spelling Program, it was our goal to create a program that teaches phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, spelling, and fluency in a systematic, yet fun and engaging way to meet the needs of both students and teachers.  So, we received input from a team of veteran early elementary teachers and created a research-based program that is aligned with the TEKS Resource System ELAR Phonics Scope & Sequence and supports the Common Core State Standards for reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language.  Our program contains daily30-minute lesson plans, weekly assessments for progress monitoring, and cooperative learning activities to enhance instruction.  This program also targets handwriting, high frequency word study, vocabulary, and other ELAR skills, and it is designed to be used as part of an existing balanced literacy program.

LATEST BLOG POST

In 2017, the K-8 English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR) TEKS were adopted by the Texas State Board of Education. We’ve had a year to wrap our minds around the new strands, knowledge and skill statements, and student expectations, and this school year we must begin implementing them. That can feel more than a little overwhelming, especially since new standards also bring with them new curriculum resources and a new scope & sequence, as well. But before you can dive into lesson planning, it’s important that you have a strong understanding of the literacy principles upon which these standards were written.
