    What educators who have used this bundle say about it:

    ♥ "Extremely comprehensive and useful!" -- Susan D.

    ♥ "A must have resource for ELLs." -- Coleen B.

    ♥ "I ... love the sentence starters. They ... are higher level thinking while remaining simple enough for students to model. My weakness as a teacher is giving too much information or cramming too many things on a paper or checklist. Yours are to-the-point, easy to understand, and get to the heart of what I teach in writing without overwhelming students." -- A 9-10th Grade ELA teacher

    All 3 writing resources have been classroom-tested with ELLs in Grades 5, 6, 7, and 8.

High school ELLs may also find the resources in this bundle useful.
