Teacher Testimonials

“Fantastic, ready to use resource! It fit right into my language arts rotations, and I began using it the very next day after purchase! I’ll keep my eye out for more items by this seller.” -Carmen M.

“I have been looking for some writing activities for a center that I do not have to change every week and I found it. I am looking forward to using these activities when I return to school in a few weeks. My guest teacher said the few I have sent are engaging and the children moan when center time is over and will ask if they can finish when there is down time. Thank you for creating a center that has rigor and is engaging.” -Robin P.

“One of the things I’ve struggled to implement in my classroom is writing. It became so much easier for me having this guide! Thank you!!” -Kaitlyn G.

“I have been wanting to incorporate writing centers into my fifth grade instruction so I am able to work with my below, on level, and advanced writers once per week.
