Fantastic Curriculum!

When I first started teaching the Lucy Calkins Units of Study, my challenges were many and my answers were few. But that’s because I hadn’t read the books. I immediately set out on a quest to make the most of this new and awesome curriculum! 

I am not going to lie and tell you it was all rainbows and sunshine. I had a hard time. I was trying to balance school, work outside of work, spend quality time with my family, and all of the things that nobody figures in to anything when they decide to be a loving teacher who wants to be a kid’s hero. Who was I to try to be a hero, and be a teacher of Lucy Calkins Units of Study, AND have a life outside of school?

As teachers, we all understand sacrifice, and we sacrifice a lot every single day. We are called to our profession and sometimes it is hard to get it all done. 

I want to encourage you that you are not alone in feeling overwhelmed as a teacher. But, I also want to encourage you by telling you that the Lucy Calkins Units of Study are fantastic! We have a lot to be thankful for!

When I first started teaching, my students were not half the readers they became after I started teaching the Lucy Calkins Units of Study! 

When I moved to other grade levels and used my products to implement the Lucy Calkins Units of Study, I saw my students’ test scores increase across the board. Each lesson in each manual is packed with TONS of wonderful, research-based instruction and incredible resources that far exceed what we can provide on our own! These Units of Study are extraordinary!

________________________________________________________________________________________

The Challenge, The Sacrifice, and The Solution

As with any curriculum, the challenge is in the implementation. Time is scarce. Life is busy. Teaching is tiring and stressful. In order to teach an extraordinary curriculum in an extraordinary way, there needs to be some extraordinary effort put into its implementation. Jammin Resources has made the extraordinary effort and is here to make an exceptional offer to you with exceptional products.

Through many years of very hard work and sacrifice, we at Jammin Resources have created premium resources that will help you implement the Lucy Calkins Units of Study with excellence. Our products go WITH the Lucy Calkins Units of Study. You cannot use our products alone

We call our products Lucy Life Savers because they give our customers their free time back!

With Lucy Life Saver products, you will get evenings, Saturdays, AND Sundays off! You deserve them! You work too hard already! Life is short! With Lucy Life Saver, you’ll spend your free time however you want!

Imagine

When you come in to teach in the morning, you will know that your lessons are already ready for you to teach. 

Imagine walking in to school on Monday, and pulling up your Lucy Life Saver slides. Imagine looking at your students’ faces. They’re smiling and laughing at the vibrant, colorful, fun graphics! They’re engaged in learning what you are teaching them. Your students think you’re awesome, and you’ve saved TONS of time! It’s a win, win!

Your students know exactly what they’re supposed to learn in each session thanks to the awesomely illustrated “Goal” slide, which is found in every session of Lucy Life Saver slides. 

During the teaching time, the slide tells you exactly what parts in the manual to read aloud and summarizes other key points that do not need to be read straight from the manual. So your students learn everything they’re supposed to for each session.   

When it comes time for the students to work, just pull up the “Activity” slide. The directions are clearly stated and easy for the students to follow, so your students will know exactly what to write or do in every session. 

The conferencing section gives you some areas where your students might be struggling, so you can help them in those areas. 

The “Share” time in Lucy Calkins can be a wild card. Thankfully, Lucy Life Saver adapts to each type of share time so you don’t have to. 

WHAT?! YOUR ADMINISTRATOR JUST WALKED IN?! No worries. You have turned in your lesson plans on time or ahead of time without fail all year long because you are a rockstar. But, just in case your administrator didn’t get the email, you have a printed copy at the ready. Your class is more focused and learning at a higher level than any other class he or she has seen all day. In fact, your administrator is very impressed with your slides and even compliments you.

Picture going home that evening and doing whatever you want. There’s no lesson plans looming over your head that need to be done.

YOUR FREE TIME IS BACK! You have peace of mind. It is yours. 

We are honored that God has chosen us to help improve the lives of other teachers. Although it has been a long, uphill struggle for years to get these resources created in the midst of life happening, there is not a more deserving group of people on the planet than teachers. We would not have gone to this amount of extraordinary effort for any other group of people. You are so deserving and yet so underappreciated.
