Currently in the "Free Download Window".... SECRET STORIES Guided Reader- "My Classmates"

For all those who follow my blog, last week I posted the SECRET STORIES Reader- My Class in a '48-HOUR FREE DOWNLOAD WINDOW' and was thrilled to see so many teachers grab it for free! 

I've decided to do the same thing with the coordinating guided reader, My Classmates. 

This 'FREE 48-HOUR DOWNLOAD WINDOW' will begin the day of this blog posting through midnight on Saturday!

To receive these and all other free download notifications, just subscribe to my blog, or follow me on Blog Lovin'!
