When you aren't willing to cut corners and let class be boring, even for a second, but you'd still like to have time to make a nice dinner now and then and go for a beautiful hike on a gorgeous day, then you're ready to rock this creative ELA Bundle.
In this bundle, I'm sharing my very favorite creative curriculum from the last fifteen years. You'll find everything from a fun icebreaker for the first day to a graduation speech exam for the last day. There are bell ringers, discussion warm-ups, creative quizzes and projects, my popular blogging unit, unique activities for any novel, posters for your walls, a maker space creative writing unit, and more.
Give yourself the gift of a few extra hours of sleep each week, a few extra miles logged in your running shoes, a few more chances to remember who you are and what you need OUTSIDE of your professional life. Your students, like mine, will thrive on these activities as they supplement your own.
Get ready to enjoy wonderful classroom engagement and happy students.
Here's a sample of what other teachers are saying about some of the materials inside:
"I used this with three different classes a few months ago and it is REALLY helpful."
"A very thorough lesson. Love the video clips and all of the helpful hints. Thank you!"
"Really appreciate your materials - prompts me to think about different ways to introduce and review materials!"
"I love the graphic design on these pages! My students are going to appreciate all this variety. I really am sick of awkward silences before discussion, and I like the idea of doing a quick and fun warm-up activity before launching into discussion."
"My students loved working on their own blog entry and everything went well thanks to this great ressource! The design is also very detailed and beautiful. Thank you so much!"
