ELA Back to School MUST Have Resource

If you are a junior or intermediate ELA teacher this resource is a true must have to get your year off to a great (and easy!) start. Modelled after Founts and Pinnell and the work they have done in the primary grades, my junior and intermediate reading/writing resource has everything you need to get your workshops up and running for the year! This resource came about after working at a literacy coach for five years. This was the answer to all the questions I was getting from teachers about how to set up and start their workshops for the year.  It is also the resource I have used in my own classroom.
