What do you feel are the non-negotiable essential parts of a k-4 reading/language arts curriculum based on common core? In my mind, they are 1. Whole group read alouds/reader's workshop 2. Guided reading 3. Spelling/Phonics (currently using Words Their Way) 4. Writer's workshop 5. Phonemic Awareness (K-2) Would love your thoughts/feedback!
