StoryTown Questions? (<-- Click here.)
  • Where are the Routine Cards the TE says to use? --> Routine Cards are only on Rubicon. You can find them in every grade level under Reading Program Overview, Resources. You'll see "Routine Cards" in the title along with the grade(s) they go with. I've printed these 2 pages per sheet, then folded them before laminating. Then you can carry them around all year or keep them on a ring clip. These are teaching tips, so for those of you with a lot o' years experience you'll probably already know a lot of the tips they're giving.
  • Where are the Language Arts Transparencies I need? --> These are only available on the One-Stop Planner CD-ROM or on the ThinkCentral website.
