HELP! A Story of Friendship
Common Core Resources
I have been writing Common Core resources for a couple of years now, and am excited to move on to a new anthology that has been adopted by my district. This is the first story, and I look forward to learning more about how the publisher and I will mesh together to enrich students’ lives. Thank you for any feedback you can offer to make this as helpful to students as possible!
