Here’s what teachers are saying:

✏️ "I really appreciate the margin notes and checklists to keep kids on track and help them self-assess throughout the process. The handouts even come with a section that lets them track their progress through the writing process. This is something I was not sure how to manage when I was in the classroom before distance learning began, and I am so excited to have a product that is so organized and includes information that promotes students' independence during our writing block. I am excited to use this next year." -Shantrell C.

✏️ "This has been a great tool to use with my students. I recently found out this is something my third grade team has been using, so it has been nice to have consistency within the building. Plus I bought both 1-2 and 3-4, so I can differentiate for my 3/4 grade students." -Emilie U.

✏️ "These writing prompts and organizers are an awesome resource for developing writing skills. I used them in class at school, and am so happy they are now digital so I can continue using them as we transition to remote learning. The different pages provided for each step in the writing process are really awesome." -Drew H.
