What educators are saying

"It's much easier to just come in" . . . such true words! This resource is WORTH the 12 bucks! Meaningful and rigorous! Sub plans - DONE!
I had to be out of my classroom at a conference for several days, and this was a lifesaver! The kids enjoyed it, it kept them engaged and it was easy for the substitute to handle. Thanks!
