June Literacy Center Menu

Now I know a lot of you are already done with school and sipping margaritas, relaxing in the sun. But there are some of us who are still in school mode for another few weeks. If you're one of those people, this is the perfect thing to get you through! Even if you haven't used the other monthly menus, this one could be used as a good "get through the last few weeks" activity. Since I usually only 2-3 weeks of school in June, I don't use this menu the same way I use my other menus. It becomes something my kids can work on while I do assessments, and when we have just that little bit of extra time. The first week of June is usually pretty normal, but after that our schedule is usually all over the place. This menu can be a life savor during those moments! Here's a preview:
