What educators are saying

This was so much better than what was suggested for a narrative piece and very timely with Thanksgiving around the corner when we started it. My students had fun with it.
These turned out to be the cutest holiday writing. It went perfectly with several Thanksgiving mentor texts. Students enjoyed making the creativity to go with their writing.
