NOTE: We will be skipping around in the Reading textbooks, when we use them.  The textbooks have the same cover, however, one of them has 2.1 on the bottom right hand corner, while the other has 2.2 in the same place. We will be skipping around using BOTH books.  Your child is told which book to bring home, s/he has to listen and do that.
