I remember when I first started teaching and how I felt like I was drowning. Drowning in paperwork. Drowning in meeting and new curriculum. Drowning in trying to get my classroom set up every day after school only to be told something different had to change by the next day.
I get it. I’ve been there.
But I also know what it feels like to finally have put together some tried and true activities, so at least my lesson plans were stocked and ready to go without feeling like I needed to come up with something new out of the box yet again this year.
Suddenly I felt in control. Perhaps I couldn’t do a darn thing about the 10th staff meeting this week or that the specials schedule was out of whack yet again. But I knew I could easily make some adjustments in my lessons if needed and still be on track.
That feeling was different. It is pride and empowerment. But mostly relief from the nonstop stress of trying to figure it all out at once.
And today, don’t teachers need all the empowerment we can muster? I really think we do.
Virtual and remote learning has put everyone back at negative square 1 for being prepared for anything. But hopefully we can start to change that.
Part of what I do outside of the class these days is helping other teachers to find those long-lost feelings. And I know a few teacher sellers who also feel the same.
That’s why we came together to offer a super exclusive option to those teachers who just wanted the hard stuff done for them. That’s a good thing. It means you can spend more time with your family at night and extra time getting to know your new superstar students during the day – even if that means you only get to “meet” them through a computer screen for the time being, trying to teach without seeing their smiles, or any combination of the above.
I was blown away by the kind words about these items from teachers everywhere. What they have said:
“Love the differentiation within this product. I use these during small group with my different levels!”
“Students love these. They were easy for me to print and use.”
“My kids loved using these this year!”
“Great product! I love how easy it was to assemble and ready to use. I printed mine on cardstock and have my students practice with clothespins which also helps build up fine motor skills highly recommend this product!”
“I plan on using these for my early finishers. They will be perfect.”
“Saved me so much time, thanks!”
“These are fabulous! I use this with my multi-grade reading group.”
“These are very thoughtfully put together.”
“Love this for my online students!”
“Amazing! I do not know what I did before I found this! The kids know exactly what to do and I don’t have to explain anything. Routine, procedures, perfection! It spirals and is amazing!!!!”
“EXCELLENT review for my students. Easy and effective.”
“Amazing Product to use for math centers!”
“I have used this product two years in a row! Makes morning work possible without a bunch on copies every morning.”
“My kids were engaged.”
“HOLY COW!! This is a HUGE packet! My kiddos are going to love this!”
And that is less than a QUARTER of them! WOW.
This is everything to us.
It also helps us to know we are doing the work we were meant to do.
