    What teachers are saying

    ❤️ “I cannot say enough about Brainy Apples' products! We've yet to be even slightly disappointed. My daughter does not enjoy history or social studies much, so we had to look beyond the textbook for her. These bundles are the perfect answer! The perfect combination of reading and comprehension and fun power points and videos. We've used several of these now, and now my daughter seeks out the videos used in the power point on her own for other subjects she wants to learn more about! She even happily watches history/social studies documentaries now. I highly recommend this bundle!” -Angela

    ❤️ “Thank goodness I found this seller! I wouldn't have survived distance learning without them! We don't use Google Classroom but it was still very easy to use. Our students either used Schoology or printed packets, which was initially quite the daunting task. These materials made it easy to adapt to keep things simple and uniform.” -Anna

    ❤️ “This was a life-saver for me. I was google-classroom illiterate and this saved me a ton of time and was honestly better than what I ever could have created myself. I'll be using this in the future once things get back to normal. Thank You!” -Erik
