Hi! This is my first year teaching Read 180, but I am Reading Recovery and Fountasâ and Pinnellâs Leveled Literacy Intervention trained. This is my 30 year in education. I find the Series 1 System 44 books are entirely too hard for my 17 BR students. They are failing all of their Reading Counts Tests because no matter how many times they listen to the book, they canât remember all the details. Letting them use the book to take the test doesnât help, because they canât read the book and are very frustrated! Need opinions and suggestions please! I want to buy into this program, but Iâm really having a hard time doing this!
