Hello, Willis Road families,
Our district is currently looking at an instructional resource
for the English Language Arts (ELA) classrooms. Teams
of ELA teachers have reviewed Ready Reading. You will
see sample lessons on the Key Ideas. (Grade 1 Grade 2 pt 1
Grade 2 pt 2 Grade 3 pt 1 Grade 3 pt 2) If you are interested in
seeing the actual books, you may visit our central office at
167 Werz Industrial Blvd from 8:00 - 4:00 during the week.
You may leave feedback at the front office with Mrs. Whetstone.
Dr. Baker, the ELA Content Specialist, will contact all schools
to retrieve any notes left regarding the series.
