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.

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 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.

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.

STAAR Test Cancelled!

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) continues to work with the Office of the Governor, Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to coordinate and plan the state’s response to COVID-19.

Given the impact of COVID-19, Governor Greg Abbott is using his statutory authority as the governor of Texas under Texas Government Code, §418.016 to suspend annual academic assessment requirements for the remainder of the 2019–2020 school year. TEA will work with the United States Department of Education to request waivers from federal testing and accountability requirements for the 2019–2020 school year.
