I have 12 years of elementary teaching under my belt and 2 years as a reading coach at the elementary level. I have spent hundreds of hours in reading trainings and doing my own reading professional development. I have used these materials in my own classroom as well as supported other teacher in implementing literature circles in their classrooms. Using this method of instruction will help your students meet the rigorous demands of Common Core. I am in Florida and these materials also meet the demand of the Florida Standards. Happy reading and discussing!
