What educators are saying

I really like this bundle. It's great for planning those tricky standards and it's great to have something to go to! Simple and easy to follow.
I've only used the folk tales unit so far, but we love it! I am excited to use the rest. I really hope a non fiction unit is in the works!! Pretty please!
