Thanks for your reply and clarification re: the editing packs. Will you be posting packs for Units 3-5 as well? I'd love to have a whole set, but I know how busy a teacher's life is during the school year. :) Just curious..... BTW, I just purchased the Tippy Toe and Henry and Mudge sets; they look fantastic! Thank you!

You are so sweet! Thank you! I am glad the Reading Street packs work for you! They are so time consuming to put together that I am so grateful for the feedback! As far as the editing packs are concerned, they are on my to do list for summer! I am currently working on Dot and Jabber! Watch for it! ;)
Thanks again!

Hi. I just found your shop and am very happy that you're creating materials for 2008 SF Reading Street, which is what my school uses. Just curious--what's the difference between the Reading Street "Fix It" Editing Unit 1 Grade 1 pack and the Reading Street Editing Unit 1 Grade 1 pack? Thanks for your assistance.

Thank you for your question! I am happy that you found my store and hope you can use some of my Reading Street materials!
The "Fix It" Editing pack features clip art that shows tools, etc. with little "Fix It" people. The other pack does not but the sentences are the same in both packs! Good question!

I teach 1st grade in SD. My district is looking at purchasing a new reading/language arts series. I've notice you’ve created items to go along with Reading Street. Is it the 2013 version?
We’re looking for real world testimonies. What do you find works well? What might be missing or lacking?
We would appreciate any feedback you can give us.
Thanks,
Pam Koller

We do not have the 2013 edition. Ours is the 2008 edition. I like the series. It gives you a good daily plan. There is way too much to teach in a week. I like the decodable books, the leveled readers, and the songs/poems. It is lacking in station ideas/materials (which is why I create my own!) It has good grammar skills also. We like the spelling skills but do not like that there are 2 different weekly spelling skills covered but usually only one of those skills is represented on the spelling list! I have noticed that some of the stories that we do not like have been replaced in the new version.
Hope this helps!

Those will be posted by the end of the weekend. Question for you...would you rather purchase them separately or as a bundle for the last 3 units?? I have been thinking about that and since you are asking about them I will ask your opinion!! THANKS!
They have been posted! Thanks for your interest in this product!

Do you have the Daily Editing for SF Reading Street for the rest of the units? These are excellent and I love the size of the lines.
Thanks!

If you let me know what is different about the 2011 version I will send it to you after purchase. Just let me know that you made the purchase and then I will add the extra files to accommodate the 2011 version. I am guessing not all of the stories are different?? If all of the stories are different I will post a whole new product for the 2011 version. Just let me know! Thanks for your interest!

Tiffany Roberson  (TpT Seller) re: Reading Street Grade One Labels/Landscape
Hi! I was the one who inquired about the Review Unit. I have the 2013 edition of Reading Street and there is a Review Unit with six stories. The stories are: Sam; Snap!; Tip and Tam; The Big Top; School Day; and Farmer's Market. The Big Question for this Unit is "What is all around me?". The weekly questions are: What is around us at home?; Who is in our family?; What is outside our door?; What can we do with our neighborhood friends?; What is around us at school?; and What can we see around our neighborhood?. Would you possibly be able to create an additional label that had the stories listed? You mentioned having created the portrait version of this product, and asked for my email address. It is kthab@hotmail.com. Thank you so much for all your help!

Yes! I will get the Review Unit added! Is it called Unit R? Thanks for the information! I will be sending you the portrait version also.
Thanks!

I have just emailed you the Portrait version with Unit R added as requested. Thanks!
