What educators are saying

This is amazing! My students benefit so much from the answer frames to use before the actual drafting. I love how these scaffold my students answers. This really helps them to write more effectively.
I love that these are on Google Slides. It means I don't have to collect 28 journals from students. Great quotes, and nice formatting.


Works well for Distance Learning! Bell ringer with a positive quote of the day for students to respond to. This digital resource in Google Slides allows students to choose a prewrite template to fit their response to a quote a day. Students write a paragraph in response to a quote each day. Great Bellringer / Do Now activity for the beginning of class.
