Thanks Deborah for the great information. I knew about Scholastics, but I
didn't know they offered materials for upper elementary. I will check into it.
I didn't anything about the other company.
These will be great resources for my students and I will definately pass it
along to my students. They have some terrific resource boxes and this would
fit in nicely with their collections.
