It's Almost Summer! Are You Ready?

Summer will be here before we know it! Summer is a great time for kids to get excited and experience learning in different ways, but planning can often be at the last minute. Read more ideas for fun and inspiring summer programming here.

Reordering Consumable Materials

Now is the time to prepare for instruction for next year! Reorder your student materials for Making Meaning and Being a Writer now to be ready for fall.

Reduced Pricing for Making Meaning Grades 7 and 8

We are happy to announce that we have lowered the price of Making Meaning middle school!

Making Meaning for grades 7 and 8 provides academic lessons that effectively channels the energy of middle school students so they can discuss literature in pairs, in groups, and as a class. As they talk about texts, students learn to understand them more deeply, gaining understanding and confidence with comprehension strategies for content-area reading.
