    OH NO! You missed out !!!

    • Last year, back on Oct 16, 2020, this product was still growing. It had 4 strategies and only cost $15.50

    • People who bought this product back then locked in their savings. They paid a lower price and then they got the remaining two strategies essentially for free.

    • The price of this bundle went up to $30.50 on Oct 8, 2021.

    • This growing bundle is now complete.

    • Some of my products are FREE or deeply discounted when they are first released. This is a special thank you to people who follow my store.



    • Stop worrying about waiting for my products to go on sale.

    • Stop stressing about missing out on early bird FREE pricing for my new products.

    ..... ⭐ THU May 11, 2023 - Oops, you just missed a sale!

    Should ChatGPT be allowed in schools? (or is this cheating?)

    ARE YOU (or your students) BURNING OUT?

    What do your students struggle with the most?

    (PS - These are lifelong resources that you can use year after year.)

    Option 1: Trying (when they've given up)

    Option 2: Standing up for others (when things aren't fair)

    Option 3: Working in groups (not the same as teamwork)

    Option 4: Getting their point across (when upset and things matter)

    Option 5: Coming up with ideas (instead of copying others)

    Option 6: Thinking logically (and making informed decisions)

    Option 7: ALL OF THE ABOVE
