I am a kindergarten teacher and am having to change reading programs. I have used “Read, Write, and Listen” for the past nine years and have really liked the progress all of my students have made using this reading series. However, they will no longer publishing this series and therefore must find a new one. Does anyone have any suggestions of what they use that they really like and feel is successful. Thank you for your help.
