♥ “One of the BEST purchases I have made this year. I needed something that I could hand out in case of a sub, on Fridays for Distance Learning, or to have on hand for when the internet isn't working! I love that there is something for every subject area and that it is all very engaging for my students. THANK YOU!” -Jen M.
♥ “This resource has been an absolute lifesaver. Some years you just need to take more days and it's a known fact among teachers that it is often easier to just push through sickness or push through a day that you really just needed off than to prepare sub plans. That fact is obsolete with these plans. I printed out master copies to put in a binder for myself so now whenever I need to take a day I simply walk to the copy machine, run the set through, and I'm done. No more searching and hunting and downloading and printing. Just copy and go. Plus, there are so many activities for each month! I would pick and choose the ones that seemed best for my class and put sticky notes on those pages. Then if I needed something extra for another day I was going to be out I would just copy some of the activities I skipped... Life Saver. Worth every penny. HIGHLY recommend!” - Sarah D.
