Rooted in Reading is a curriculum that was created to enhance the Language Arts instruction in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classrooms. We began creating our Rooted in Reading units in the fall of 2015. Now we have over 19,675 classrooms that are using our curriculum.
Katie King and Amy Lemons have put together this document to share what Rooted in Reading is all about. We tell you WHAT it is, HOW it works, WHY we created it, the BENEFITS of using a read-aloud based curriculum, and WHO is using it. We surveyed 500 teachers that utilize the resources in their classroom. In this document you will read teacher testimonies, see pictures in action, and find answers to our survey.
