Grade level curricular choice boards are now available for students to use, as a means of enrichment and continued learning. Please select your student’s grade level and you will find a choice board complete with links and learning activities to explore. These choice boards will be updated weekly so that your student has access to new learning opportunities each and every week! We will also archive these on this same page so that students can go back and complete activities from prior weeks if they so choose. https://sites.google.com/galesburg205.org/choice-boards/home
