New Digital Resources for a New Time
During these unprecedented times, we truly believe teachers need a practical, easy-to-use resource to continue their students’ education in a distance learning / flexible education / virtual classroom atmosphere.
This DIGITAL resource includes a completely editable weekly 3rd, 4th, or 5th-grade reading lesson plan template (in Google Sheets) aligned to the New ELAR TEKS with access to 4 digital daily spiral reviews (Monday-Thursday), a weekly assessment, daily differentiated skill practice (basic & advanced), and 4 constructed-response options, all using Google Forms. We will be making these weekly until the end of the school year as many schools do not expect to return to the classroom until August.
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 results to 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.
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.
