• Core Reading


    Elementary Level

    Educational Services is currently working with elementary teacher teams to determine new selections for core reading. This is a multi-year effort to update and diversify the past collection. The initial choices made for each grade level are listed below. Read aloud copies and/or class sets of these books have been provided to classroom teachers. Teachers may read high quality books through our adopted language arts program, as well as other teacher selections throughout the school year. Please contact your classroom teacher for more information.
