Pearson Reading Street Grammar skills for 3rd grade

Do you use Pearson's Reading Street with your third graders?  We've used it for years, and I really do like the series.  I hear lots of negative stuff about using a basal, but I like the stories, the kids seem to enjoy most of them and the majority of the accompanying resources are really strong.  In Indiana, the Pearson company also makes our end of year state test, so the curriculum is lined up really nicely to prepare the kiddos for that.   It doesn't matter how much you like or dislike using a basal, state testing, or following a more strict schedule for teaching, they are facts of life for many of us.   We do throw in 4 novels through the year, but that's another post.  

I created a series of worksheets to accompany each of our stories with the assigned grammar lesson for the week.  Even if you don't use Pearson Reading Street, these are appropriate grammar skills for 3rd graders and you could use them supplementary to any series or novel studies you might use.
