Stories for the Classroom

If you’re looking for some short (or long!) stories to have your higher level kids read, then I suggest you check out the Ebooks folder, located in the Secondary Folder.

For those of you who have seen the blog post on how Breanna Durham used “The Monkey’s Paw” in her reading club class, this folder will hopefully be somewhat familiar.
