For Math we are using Houghton Mifflin Go Math. The website for Houghton Mifflin Go Math, Houghton Mifflin Journeys and Houghton Mifflin Science Fusion is www.launchpad.ocps.net.

 

Houghton Mifflin Reading programs are the subjects of rigorous independent research studies that confirm their efficacy and ensure their compliance with federal No Child Left Behind legislation. One such study began in 1997 under the auspices of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). The study demonstrates that students using

 

Houghton Mifflin Reading consistently performed better in critical beginning reading skills than those using other programs. In 2003, Houghton Mifflin Reading was also the best-selling reading textbook program for grades K–6 in the United States.
