Is the stand alone 44 program designed for grade 3? This is my 2nd year using the Read 180NG program in a 3rd grade resource room. Last year all of my students had tested into System 44, many with BR on their first RI. It felt awkward using the 180 whole group part of the program b/c my students were really not ready for it. Perhaps you can guide me to which program I should be using. I am loving the 44 software piece, the 44 RDI Phonics & Word Study, the Decodable Digest, and the library books/ebooks.
