What educators are saying

I used this last year to teach beginning letter writing to my grade 3’s and it worked perfectly. Easy to follow instructions and they all loved the activities. Thanks!
This pack is amazing! My students loved the different types of friendly letters that we wrote, and the activities to go along with them!
