If you are new to Benchmark the most exciting thing I found was how much my students liked the stories. I was worried about that and was pleasantly surprised with how much they enjoyed them!!! Also, do not try and do it all your first year; pick and choose different things in the units and give it a try to see what works.
Can you please remind me how to get to the shared google drive for 3rd grade?
