Resources for May “Daily Specials” –

 (The following is not even close to being complete.  May is when our state required “school” days are finished, and we take a bit of a break from daily studying.  Thus, I don’t have many resources to share from past studies. Hopefully, I’ll be updating the daily specials with resources as we go through the month, so check back.  And, if you have special day resource favorites, be sure to let me know and I’ll edit them in.)
