- “This was a great resource to use with poetry instruction. It was clear, concise, and engaging. It hit on everything my students needed and did it in a way that was engaging and did not elicit an "ugghhh poetry!" response from my students! They were ready to learn and engage with the lessons each day and did so without complaint! Wahoo!”
- “A fantastic resource for my grade 6's to learn more about poetry.”
- “I was dreading teaching poetry in DL [distance learning]. I am so thankful for these resources! Lessons were engaging, students were interested and excited to learn.”
