Essential core curriculum
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!
