Great resource for my son.

I am a learning resource teacher. These passages include all components of the lesson with high quality text passages. Thank you very much. Nancy

I absolutely love the new changes you have made. The text is more complex and appropriate for second grade. The questions support accessing the text to support answers. The vocabulary add on is exactly what my English Language Learners require. Thank you so much for continually making updates that s upport the Common Core.
