Check out what other teachers, just like you, are saying about this resource:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I have used this resource for both distance and in person learning. Students complete this during morning work time as it is a great way to get their brains going in the morning in a low stakes environment. Students enjoy learning about new people, words, and ideas. Parents have also shown interest in getting a coy for themselves." -Dahlia M.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This is perfect! My students are aware of the expectation when they enter class to get out their journals and complete the daily prompt as bellwork, which allows me the opportunity to get class started in a calm way!" Allison B.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This is a great resource and is one of my favorite purchases this school year! I like the variety of people and quotes selected. I also like that it comes with more than enough quotes, so I can keep the ones that I like and discard the ones I don't. The Monday activities really require my students to explain their thinking. The colors are beautiful, but I am glad that it also comes in black and white. Awesome job! I am looking forward to purchasing more in the future!" -Lola B.
