I think it helped me just as much as the kids. Eye opening! My! Now I know that some of my kids that I thought were doing fine on decoding skills are really struggling. I just pick some words to make my chart each week. So even if you aren't using Treasures you can still add words according to your spelling patterns.
On a happier note...my evaluation is over. I am relieved--even though I don't know how I did. I used several sources to teach all about graphs/data.
The kiddos were excellent in behavior. And we ended with making the turkey glyph cookies. The principal took off before we actually got into the cookies, icing, raisons, and candy!
