Journeys Third Grade

under construction February 2019

 

 

  

These activities were created in response to a request by teachers to supplement the Houghton Mifflin Journeys series. Please let me know if you find errors since I don't have a class of readers who are anxious to be editors of new materials from the 2014 version of Journeys third grade. Enjoy!
