    Teachers love it!

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "This was great for sub plans! Nicely laid out instructions for the guest to follow and just printing on my part. Very convenient for me and engaging for the students. I enjoy having content for the students to still be learning so it isn't a loss of a day, if and when I have to be away and this did just that. I also got compliments from the sub who was thrilled to have something thorough planned for her and once again not me, ALL YOU. Thank you!" -Katherine R.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "My sub reported that the students were super engaged with the lessons and that they had great conversations about the topics. Love that the sub plans are so detailed that anyone could teach it! Looking forward to using these again year after year!" -Ingrid B.
