    Do you have access to the answer keys for 3rd and 5th grade cold reads? I am wanting to use these as retests for my Special Education students. Thanks in advance for any help you may can offer.

    This is good stuff! I’m about to teach a true beginner, a young learner, English as a Foreign Language. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    1. Thank you for that link, do you have the same links for grade 1-3 and grade 5-6? How do I find these? I am looking for the weekly assesments and benchmark assesments specifically for each grade.

  4. I am looking for the weekly assesments and benchmark assesments specifically for each grade do you happen to have the links for these? Someone above posted them for 4th grade only.

  5. I can’t get the links to work anymore. The page opens but just spins and spins. Is anyone else having this problem?

  6. Hi!
    Any chance you have found any of the grade 6 projectables? Those would be a great addition to some of these resources! I love that you have the textbook digitally!

  7. Hi, TRAYKAY

    I was hoping that you may be able to find the Cold Reads for Grade 1 and 2?

    I very much appreciate your website.

    Regards Paul

    1. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find Cold Reads for Grades 1 and 2. I’ve checked the various sections of the Teachers Resources and have not seen them. I’ll add them if I come across them.

    2. I have added the Cold Reads for Grades 1 and 2 to the blog post. Those with access to Journeys teacher resources can find them in the Literacy Workshop under Assessments.

    Tysm for this website! Is it possible to download the Journeys Write In Readers for each grade level? My school internet goes out alot and then I can’t access them. Thanks!

    1. I don’t think downloading can be done from the online site. It looks like you may be able to print individual pages from the “More” tab.
