    Teach Folktales Using a Hybrid of Traditional and Virtual Methods With Your Students!

    Are you frustrated when trying to find engaging virtual resources aligned with your curriculum and standards?

    You know you need engaging technology resources that help students achieve learning outcomes, but what does that look like in the classroom and distance learning? 

    I know you are tired of students CONSUMING information when using technology. You need already prepared resources to push out to students, aligned to your objectives, and allow students to showcase their depth of knowledge. 

    I developed these digital interactive notebooks to go with my folktale units and allow students to CREATE content.

    Invest in Yourself and Your Students Today!

    With these folktale units and digital interactive notebooks, you no longer have to be frustrated by finding the resources you need to engage your students. Plus, stop wasting time planning and looking for support. This unit is what you need to teach folktales to your students.

    You know that sometimes, students need to read and write without using technology. However, when you use digital interactive notebooks, students can use traditional methods and yet turn-in their work digitally.

    • Stop feeling anxious if there are times you need to teach remotely.
    • Using digital interactive notebooks saves you time.
    • Spend less time making copies.
