Updated to coordinate with 2014 and 2017 Journeys, this weekly newsletter packet will keep your students organized and will keep your parents up to date on what skills and strategies are the weekly focus.
Specifically, this resource packet includes a separate newsletter for each lesson (week) in Unit 4. Send home the weekly newsletter so parents and students have at their fingertips this information:
• the skill information for reading and English

No more searching through multiple papers for this important information - it is all on one page!
