**NOTE: If you are purchasing more than one grade level packet of the same month within MIDDLE SCHOOL (6-8) please note that they are VERY similar. This is because Common Core groups middle school as 6-8 and the concepts are very similar throughout the three years. Some passages/questions differ depending on the monthly packet. Please read the contents carefully and email if you have any questions!
Any questions or concerns... firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great year!
