I am stuck teaching only with reading passages and workbooks
I'm a fifth year teacher, going from first grade to fourth grade in the state of Texas, which means STAAR testing. My directive is to teach only from supplemental resources like workbooks and reading passages (no authentic literature). Can anyone please share any ideas on how to make my teaching more interesting and engaging while only using reading passages in my fourth grade classroom?
