Fundamentals Unlimited: A Vital Resource for Meeting the Individual Needs of Each Student
Schoolwide subscribes to the widely held and research-based position that reading and writing are integrated, complex, and multi-faceted processes that utilize a range of skills and strategies working simultaneously and synergistically. Moreover, we recognize that each student’s path to literacy achievement is unique.
Our Reading, Writing, and Foundational Skills curriculum materials provide explicit, standards-aligned frameworks for whole class instruction, small group work, and independent practice. However, to truly meet the individual needs of each student, teachers must also have access to a plethora of quality supplemental resources. Fundamentals Unlimited is that source!
Fundamentals Unlimited provides teachers with access to thousands of additional:
- Ready-to-Use, Teacher-Friendly Lessons
- Short Shared Texts and eBooks
- Anchor Charts
- Graphic Organizers
- Student Writing Samples
- Kid-Watching Tools
- Benchmark Assessments with Running Records
- Unit Summative Assessments and Quizzes
- Writing Prompts and Rubrics
- Student Self-Assessments and Surveys
- Resources to Support Multilingual Learners
Next Steps: How Can We Support You?
Schoolwide’s approach to supporting our partner schools and districts is not one-size-fits-all. We welcome the opportunity to learn and understand your specific literacy goals and needs, form a trusting relationship, and discuss a comprehensive and responsive plan that achieves results.
