We are starting our new curriculum this quarter. It is Called Benchmark Advance. This is the program that has been adopted by Volusia County Schools. Please see the attachment for what is being covered as we transition. Every week the lesson plan for Benchmarks will be an attachment. We most likely won’t get to everything on the document as we learn the new routines. Each week we will still have the same spelling, vocab, and grammar that we have been using. We will also have a formative test for the reading skills we have covered each week. Every third week will be a summative test of the skills.
